ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Five Turkish soldiers were killed and nine wounded on Friday in a car bomb attack by Islamic State militants in the Suflaniyah area near the northern Syrian town of al-Bab, the Turkish military said in a statement.

The Turkish army and Syrian rebels launched an operation in August to drive the jihadists away from the border region and have besieged the Islamic State-controlled town of al-Bab for weeks.
