  On the next Your Call’s Friday media roundtable, we’ll discuss Turkey’s military operation in Kurdish areas in Northern Syria. So far, at least 24 people have been killed – including 16 Kurdish fighters and eight civilians – while dozens more have been injured. Tens of thousand of people are also fleeing their homes.

We’ll also talk about the investigation into whether Donald Trump abused his power in pressuring Ukraine to intervene in the 2020 election, and important issues facing the Supreme Court.
