Turkish warplanes hit Islamic State, Kurdish militia sites in Syria

The sources did not give further details.
Earlier on Saturday, a group allied to the Kurdish-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance which includes the Kurdish YPG militia, said its positions were bombarded by Turkish warplanes near Jarablus, a frontier town in northern Syria.
