Gruesome ISIS video shows Turkish soldiers burned alive

Operation Euphrates Shield, in northern Syria, has been running since August, with Turkish forces and Syrian rebels fighting to retake one of Isis's final strongholds.

The military had said earlier that the rebel forces, which have been launching attacks on Islamic State fighters in al-Bab for weeks, had largely established control over the strategic area around the town's hospital.

A report on their website said, "The Turkey Blocks monitoring network has detected throttling of Twitter and YouTube affecting many internet users in Turkey".

Dramatic footage purportedly showed Turkish jets unleashing a bombing raid on al-Bab.

Melbourne police foil Christmas Day 'terror attack' plot
Seven people have been arrested in Melbourne after allegedly preparing for an "ISIS-inspired" terrorist attack on Christmas Day. He added that the targets included Federation Square, in the city centre, Flinders Street Station and St Paul's Cathedral.

They confess to having fought against "the soldiers of the caliphate" - as IS calls the territory it controls - and say that they were captured in action near Aleppo.

Towards the end of the video, two Turkish soldiers are shown being held captive in a cage with large chains around their neck.

On Friday, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared that the Turkish-supported offensive to recapture al-Bab was on the verge of completion, without providing further information.

Rebels supported by Turkish troops have laid siege to the Daesh-held town for weeks under the "Euphrates Shield" operation launched by Turkey almost four months ago to sweep the hardliners and Kurdish extremists from its Syrian border.

At least 37 Turkish soldiers have been killed in northern Syria since then, including 16 during the clashes in al-Bab this week.
