Turkish-backed forces operating in Syria have reportedly advanced into the border town of Tel Abyad in the north-east of the country on Sunday.
Footage shows Turkish-backed forces patrolling the town on foot and with armoured vehicles, with streets deserted and buildings left empty.
Ankara's military offensive dubbed 'Operation Peace Spring' began on October 9 with the aim of creating a 'safe zone' in north-eastern Syria cleared of Kurdish forces. The offensive sparked protests in several countries and has drawn widespread criticism.
