Hundreds 'neutralised' in Turkish strikes on Syria - BBC News

Turkey has threatened to launch a land operation against Kurdish militants in Syria after carrying out air strikes that killed 254 "terrorists" on Sunday.

Turkey launched the strikes - which hit targets in Syria and Iraq - in response to a bombing in Istanbul that killed six people earlier this month.

Ankara blames Kurdish militants for the bomb. They have denied any involvement.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned the strikes were "only the beginning".

Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said the operation had targeted 471 targets, and "neutralised" - a term generally meaning killed - hundreds of "terrorists".

One of the places hit by the Turkish attack - dubbed Operation Claw-Sword - includes the Jerkin prison in Qamishli which holds detainees from the Islamic State group, AFP said.
