Turkish troops and their Syrian rebel allies have entered the centre of the ISIL bastion Al Bab in northern Syria, saying its capture was just a “matter of time”.

Turkish forces and allied rebels in the Euphrates Shield campaign entered the western edge of the town and took control of a number of areas,” the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

“Al Bab is now besieged from all fronts … Our forces entered the centre” with Turkish-backed Syrian rebels, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told journalists in Istanbul on Sunday before leaving for a tour of Gulf countries.

Erdogan also stated that Daesh forces have begun leaving Al Bab completely.
