Recep Tayyip Erdogan Says Turkish Army Close To Taking ISIS-Held Town

Turkish troops backed by Syrian rebel fighters have entered the centre of the ISIS group bastion of Al-Bab and will soon capture it, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Sunday.

The town in Syria's Aleppo province is the last stronghold of the jihadist group in the region, and has also been targeted by Syrian government forces.

The Syrian opposition, meanwhile, announced the formation of a delegation to attend a new round of UN-sponsored peace talks in Geneva on February 20.
