The U.S. ambassador to Ankara was summoned to the foreign ministry on Wednesday to be briefed on Turkey's military offensive into northeastern Syria, broadcaster CNN Turk said, minutes after Ankara launched its cross-border operation.

Turkey had been poised to advance into northeast Syria since U.S. troops began vacating the area in an abrupt policy shift by President Donald Trump. Earlier, President Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey and its Syrian rebel allies had started the offensive.
