Turkish warplanes have for the first time joined raids by the US-led coalition against Islamic State positions in Syria, after Washington urged Ankara to play a full role in the battle against the jihadists.

Turkey, which had been accused of complacency towards the IS fighters in neighbouring Syria, last month launched what it called a war on terror on two fronts.

This was targeting IS jihadists in Syria and also Kurdish PKK rebels and their bases in northern Iraq.
