TURKEY ASKS US-LED COALITION FOR AIR SUPPORT AT AL BAB

Ankara called on members of the US-led coalition against Islamic State to provide air support for Turkey-backed troops laying siege to the Syrian town of al-Bab, held by fighters from the group.

Rebels supported by Turkish troops have laid siege to the town for weeks in the “Euphrates Shield” operation launched by Turkey to sweep the Sunni hardliners and Kurdish fighters from its Syrian border.
