The unfolding crisis in Syria is causing massive civilian displacement as the various actors in the region rush to fill the power vacuum left by the departure of US forces.

Over the past week, CBN News has been traveling throughout Syria with the Free Burma Rangers, a small non-governmental organizational headed up by Dave Eubank. The situation on the ground has been rapidly changing.

"We're here to help casualties now that the free Syrian army and the Turks have launched a massive attack displacing over 300,000 people.  There's people trapped in that village of Sari Kani right now," Eubanks said.

"Five ambulances tried to make a run to get the wounded out, they were blown up, medics were killed, and we're trying to find a way to get there. But you can't without some kind of closed airspace. So we are appealing on the US government, the coalition to stop the air and to get a way we can get the wounded out," he added.

Celebratory gunfire could be heard all over the city of Tal Tamr in northern Syria, as people celebrated the ceasefire with Turkey. Shooting guns to celebrate a ceasefire shows that everybody is very happy that there is a possibility that the Turks might lay down their arms for now and put an end to the violence.
