US President Donald Trump compared the Turkish offensive on Syrian Kurds to a fight between "two kids in a lot" during a rally in Dallas on Thursday, after applauding a ceasefire agreed to earlier in the day.

Trump described his position vis-a-vis the Turkish offensive as "unconventional," adding "sometimes you have to let them fight, it's like two kids in a lot, you've got to let them fight, then you pull them apart."

On Thursday, US Vice President Mike Pence announced a five-day ceasefire in Turkey's military operation, dubbed 'Operation Peace Spring,' which began on October 9, days after the White House announced a withdrawal of US troops from the area. Ankara said the offensive aimed to create a 'safe zone' cleared of Kurdish groups.
