Turkish tanks rolled into Syria for the first time this morning as Ankara launched an ‘unprecedented’ operation to free a town controlled by ISIS.

Turkish fighter jets and special forces stormed across the border on a mission to drive the Islamists out of the border town of Jarablus, and were quickly followed by ground forces.

It is the first time Turkey has invaded Syria, following years of minor skirmishes which have seen rockets fired across both sides of the border.

The military escalation was immediately condemned by Syria’s foreign ministry as a ‘flagrant violation’ of its sovereignty.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the Syria operation was aimed at ‘putting an end to’ border problems caused by ISIS, but he is also targeting Kurdish fighters who are backed by the US.
