Turkish fighters make flight over Syria

Two Turkish F-16 fighters have made a flight over Syrian airspace as part of a multinational campaign to fight and eradicate the ISIL in the war-torn country, amid Turkish-American talks for setting up a safe zone in the eastern Euphrates.

The Turkish Defense Ministry announced that two F-16s of the Turkish Air Forces flew over Syrian airspace for two hours between 10 a.m. and noon.

It said the flights took place under Operation Inherent Resolve, a multinational operation seeking to defeat ISIL in Syrian and Iraqi territories, Hurriyet Daily reported.

The flight of the Turkish aircrafts comes as Turkey and the U.S. are in talks for setting up a safe zone in eastern Syria. They have conducted one ground patrol mission and six reconnaissance flights inside Syria so far. There are reports of preparations for a second combined ground patrol mission.
