When Turkey and Syrian Kurdish fighters agreed to a ceasefire, no one was more relieved than civilians living on both sides of the border.

For people living in Turkey within mortar range of YPG Kurdish militants, including the majority that supports Turkey's military operation, there's no time like the present to turn a temporary cessation of hostilities into a permanent one.

This segment aired on November 7, 2019.
