Turkey sends more tanks to Syria, warns Kurdish militia

Turkey sent more tanks into Syria on Thursday and sternly warned a Kurdish militia to withdraw from frontline positions, a day after pro-Ankara Syrian opposition fighters captured a key border town from jihadists. The tanks joined those which crossed the frontier on Wednesday in the so-called Operation Euphrates Shield, which Turkey says aims to rid the northern Syrian border area of both Islamic State (IS) extremists and Kurdish militia. Hundreds of Syrian rebel fighters — backed by Turkish tanks, war planes and special forces — had on Wednesday taken the town of Jarabulus to end over three years of jihadist control.
