Turkish jets hit targets in Syria, Iraq after Istanbul bomb blast

Kurdish fighters report ‘deaths and injuries’ after Turkish air raids hit Kobane and two villages housing people displaced by war in Syria.

Turkish military planes have hit targets in northern Syria and Iraq, bombing bases Turkey’s defence ministry claimed were used by those behind an explosion in central Istanbul last weekend that killed six people and wounded more than 80.

The Turkish defence ministry announced the launch of the raids in a statement on Twitter on Sunday.
