WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest developments following President Donald Trump’s decision to abandon Syrian Kurdish fighters ahead of an expected Turkish offensive into northeastern Syria (all times local):

A top European Union official is calling on Turkey to halt its military operation in northern Syria and is warning that the EU will not be paying to help Ankara set up any safe zone there.

The article goes on to state the following:

Speaking to EU lawmakers Wednesday, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said: “I call on Turkey as well as on the other actors to act with restraint and to stop operations already, as we are speaking, underway.”

The Associated Press noted that the “EU is paying Turkey 6 billion euros ($6.6 billion) to help the country cope with almost 4 million Syrian refugees on its territory in exchange for stopping migrants leaving for Europe.”

However, the E.U. is threatening to pull the funding. Juncker reportedly said that “if the Turkish plan involves the creation of a so-called safe zone, don’t expect the European Union to pay for any of it.”

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced on Twitter that his country is now moving in to invade northeastern Syria.

Turkish warplanes have already started targeting “civilian areas” in northern Syria, a Kurdish spokesman has reported, saying the airstrikes have caused “a huge panic among people of the region.”
