World - Turkey hits Syrian Kurd group again

Turkey hit Kurdish militia targets in northern Syria for the second time in less than 72 hours, the military said Saturday, as Ankara vowed further action. Rockets struck 70 People`s Protection Units (YPG) targets Friday, the Turkish armed forces said in a statement that did not reveal whether any militia fighters had been killed. The strikes came after two Ankara-backed Syrian opposition fighters were injured when YPG forces opened fire south of the flashpoint town of Jarabulus, the military said, quoted in the official Anadolu news agency.

World - Turkey `obliged` to press on to Syria`s al-Bab, Erdogan says

By Tuvan Gumrukcu and Lisa Barrington ANKARA/BEIRUT (Reuters) - Turkish-backed forces will press on to the Islamic State-held town of al-Bab in Syria, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday, emphasizing Ankara`s drive to sweep militants and Syrian Kurdish fighters from territory near its border. The Syrian military, however, said the presence of Turkish troops on Syrian soil was unacceptable and a `dangerous escalation and flagrant breach of Syria`s sovereignty.` Backed by Turkish tanks, special forces and air strikes, a group of rebels fighting under the loose banner of the Free Syrian Army crossed into northern Syria in August and took the border town of Jarablus from Islamic State largely unopposed. The rebels have since extended those gains and now control an area of roughly 1,270 square km (490 square miles) in northern Syria.

World - Needs must; EU walks tightrope on Turkey

By Gabriela Baczynska BRUSSELS (Reuters) - As dismayed as they may be at Turkey`s post-coup crackdown, EU leaders meeting in Brussels on Thursday will avoid any harsh criticism of Ankara, whose help they badly need in keeping a lid on migration into Europe. Ankara`s dismissal and detention of tens of thousands of people over their alleged links to the failed July coup has cast a long shadow on its accession talks with the EU.

World - Turkey`s EU minister says migrant readmissions may end without visa deal

By Tulay Karadeniz and Tuvan Gumrukcu ANKARA (Reuters) - The European Union should implement visa-free travel for Turks by the end of the year and stop insisting that Turkey change its anti-terrorism laws, or Ankara may cancel its side of a deal to stop illegal migration, Turkey`s EU minister told Reuters. Turkey agreed in March to stop illegal migrants crossing into Greece in exchange for financial aid for those in its care, the promise of visa-free travel for its citizens to much of the EU, and accelerated EU membership talks.
