The country’s Chief of General Staff’s office, cited by the state-owned Anadolu Agency, said Turkish jets struck eight Isis targets and that tanks and artillery opened fired on 103 targets near the al-Bab stronghold.

The retaliation, an immediate response to a gunman’s killing of at least 39 people at the Reina bar on the banks of the Bosphorus, has reportedly killed 22 people.

Russian jets have also attacked Isis targets in Dayr Kak which lies around five miles southwest of al-Bab.

Isis claimed responsibility for the attack on Monday morning.
