Syria war: Turkey strikes ISIL targets in Jarablus
Turkish fighter jets have struck ISIL targets in the Syrian border town of Jarablus, according to Turkish news media.
Wednesday's operation is a part of a joint campaign by Turkish special forces and the US-led coalition to clear fighters belonging to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as ISIS, from the Syria-Turkey border.
"The operation, which began at around 4am local time (01:00 GMT), is aimed at clearing the Turkish borders of terrorist groups, helping to enhance border security and supporting the territorial integrity of Syria," the state-run Anadolu Agency quoted Turkish officials as saying.
