Turkey's PM has said Syrian rebels backed by its military have driven out "all terrorist organisations" from a strip of Syrian land bordering Turkey.

Monitors said the presence of so-called Islamic State on the border had been ended. Turkey also describes Kurdish groups as terrorists.

The advance cuts off IS supply lines it used to import fighters and weapons.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim made the announcement about Ankara's military successes in a televised speech yesterday.
