Bombing is tactical shift for country that has been reluctant to join US-led coalition

Turkish warplanes struck Islamic State group targets across the border in Syria on Friday, government officials said, a day after IS militants fired at a Turkish military outpost, killing a soldier.

The bombing is a strong tactical shift for Turkey, which has long been reluctant to join the US-led coalition against the extremist group.
