ISTANBUL  - Turkish tanks on Wednesday approached the Syrian border and were firing on targets, but stopped short of crossing the frontier, CNN Turk reported, showing live footage of several tanks maneuvering along the border.

Earlier, CNN Turk said the tanks were crossing into Syria but then reported they had remained within Turkish territory.

Turkish fighter jets, backed by US-led coalition aircraft, struck Islamic State targets near the border town of Jarablus in Syria and tanks fired on the rebel positions with cross-border fire, military sources said.
