Turkey was until recently a reluctant partner in the US coalition against IS, but over the past few days it has bombed IS and Kurdish positions.
Turkey is also backing plans for a buffer zone on the border with Syria.

Meanwhile Turkish police have continued to arrest suspected members of IS, the PKK and leftist groups – more than 1,000 over the past week.
