Airstrikes kill 14 militants in Syria
In Syria, at least 14 militants were killed and several others wounded in coalition airstrikes in the city of Aleppo on Wednesday.
According to Turkey's state-run news agency Anadolu, the strikes came after Turkey's military had determined that IS militants were preparing to attack the Turkish territory from the region.
Meanwhile, thousands of US-backed fighters are launching an offensive against so-called Islamic State to re-capture Manbij pocket.
The operation aims to choke off Islamic State's access to Syrian territory along the Turkish border.
The operation will also count on support from U.S.-led coalition airstrikes .
