To intervene or not to intervene? That's the question for Europe, after Turkey's incursion against Kurds in northern Syria. Two weeks on, Turkey and Russia have made a deal that demands the Kurds pull back 30 kilometres from almost the entire Syria-Turkey border. Already, at least 120 civilians have died, while more than 176,000 have been forced to flee, according to the United Nations. So what about Europe's response?

European heads of state condemned the incursion at the latest EU summit, and member states agreed to stop selling arms to Turkey.

But should Europe go further? And if so: how, and with what aim?
