Image from aircraft cockpit video released by Turkey’s state-run agency Anadolu Friday, July 24, 2015, of what they report to be Turkish warplanes striking Islamic State group targets across the border in Syria. Earlier a government official said three F-16 jets took off from Diyarbakir airbase in southeast Turkey early Friday and used smart bombs to hit three IS targets across the Turkish border province from Kilis. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of government rules requiring prior authorisation for comment, said the targets were two command centres and a gathering point of IS supporters. The official said the Turkish planes had not violated Syrian airspace. (Anadolu via AP Video) TURKEY OUT TV OUT
