On Friday, Turkish F-16 Falcon combat jets carried out two waves of airstrikes against ISIL positions in northern Syria. The operation was backed on the ground by tanks and artillery from the Turkish side of the border.
"When the northern regions of Syria will be cleared from the Islamic State’s threats, there will be established a buffer zone. We have constantly advocated the necessity of establishing a no-fly zone and the security zone in Syria, where the country could resettle the refugees," Cavusoglu said at a press conference.
Syria is currently in the state of a civil war as government forces have been fighting several armed groups, including ISIL.
An international coalition of over 60 countries are conducting airstrikes against ISIL positions in Syria and Iraq.
