Turkish, US troops conduct 2nd joint patrol in north Syria

Turkey's Defense Ministry says troops have completed their second joint ground patrol with the United States in northeastern Syria

Turkey had been pressing for a safe zone to keep the Kurdish fighters, considered terrorists by Turkey, away from the border.

Separately, the ministry said Turkish F-16s flew in Syrian airspace, east of the Euphrates River, on Monday and Tuesday as part of the U.S.-led Operation Inherent Resolve against the Islamic State group.
