Turkey urges Syrians to leave ISIS-held town

Turkish media reported on Monday that the air force is pounding Islamic State targets in northern Syria and has dropped leaflets calling on residents to leave a militant stronghold there.


The private Dogan news agency said the armed forces had dropped leaflets on al-Bab, the next target of a campaign by Turkish-backed Syrian opposition forces.


The leaflets urge civilians to flee to secure areas, saying "God willing, victory is near." They urge residents to "not let the Daesh terror, which serves the devil, exploit you," referring to ISIS by an Arabic acronym.


Images of the Arabic and Turkish language pamphlets were also circulated on social media. There was no comment from the army.
