Heavy shellings of Islamic state positions marks the start of a Turkish offensive to drive away militants from the Syrian border

Heavy shelling of so-called Islamic State positions has marked the start of a Turkish offensive to drive the militants away from the Syrian border.

Artillery and rocket launchers rained 224 rounds on the Jarablus area, as Turkish jets bombed their first targets in Syria this year.

Tanks could be seen moving up to the border and opening fire.

Turkish special forces are already inside Syria as part of the operation to clear IS out of Jarablus.
