We look at a conflict that's going on at the moment on the border of Turkey and Syria. It started a couple of weeks ago after the US announced it was bringing its soldiers home from the region. But to understand why it's happening you have to understand a bit about Syria's recent history and Turkey's relationship with the Kurdish people.
