Turkey warned it would not hesitate to strike back at Islamic State militants if they attacked Turkish troops stationed at Ankara's exclave inside Syria.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey will absolutely not hesitate to respond if something happens there, referring to the tomb of Suleyman Shah, the grandfather of the founder of the Ottoman dynasty Osman I.

His warning came just two days after Turkey's top general issued an unusual message of support for the Turkish troops stationed at the tomb, saying that the army "will be there for you the moment we hear a single word from you.

Its parliament this week authorised the government to take military action against IS extremists.
