More than 170,000 people have fled their homes in northern Syria since Turkey launched its offensive two weeks ago. Civilians in the area have lived through years of unrest, including revolution against the Assad regime, the battle to defeat ISIS and now the U.S. troop withdrawal. Nick Schifrin talks to journalist and author Gayle Tzemach Lemmon about those civilians forced to adapt yet again.
