IS attack kills 3 more Turkish soldiers in Syria

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has reiterated his call for a no-fly zone and safe zones for refugees in northern Syria during the G20 summit.

Erdogan said any Turkish role would have to be worked out separately.

Syria has been locked in a vicious civil war since early 2011 when the regime of Bashar al-Assad cracked down on pro-democracy protests.

The Turkish military launched the cross-border Operation Euphrates Shield on August 24 along with the US-led coalition in Syria's northern border city of Jarablus to clear the area from the IS.

The Free Syrian Army and the Turkish Armed Forces have liberated around 100 villages and Jarabulus from the IS militants since the beginning of the operation.

Turkey's Anadolu news agency said Erdogan told Putin that it was essential to agree to a ceasefire in Aleppo "as soon as possible".

Turkey is building an underground power line to supply the town of Jarabulus in Syria with electricity two weeks after Turkish forces helped pro-Ankara rebels to recapture the town from jihadists, an official said on Thursday.

On Aug. 27, one Tourkish soldier was killed and three others injured when the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) attacked their tanks.

At least six civilians were killed and eight others were injured in the Turkish bombardment, which targeted the Sourkeh district in Afrin. "From now on, we have to demonstrate our presence in the region", he said.

Turkey sees the US -backed YPG as a terrorist group and an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK), which has carried out a three-decade insurgency in southeast Turkey. "If we take a backward step terror groups like Daesh, PKK, PYD and YPG will settle there", he said.

Asked if there was any change in United States approach on the issue of PYD, Erdogan said: "At least, there s been no interference into Turkey".

He said its was open to working with "national forces" to drive Turkish troops from all territories between Jarabulus and Iskanderun - the Syrian province annexed by Turkey in 1939.

"God willing, we are hoping for a cease fire in (region of) Aleppo before the Eid", said Erdogan, adding that President Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation has promised him this would happen in days.
