Hosted by

Early this morning Turkish fighter jets struck several command centers for the Islamic State in nearby Syria. It's Turkey's first direct engagement in the fight against ISIS, after years of resistance despite criticism from its NATO allies. In another diplomatic change, Turkey has also given permission for US warplanes to use two Turkish bases to target ISIS in Syria, as we hear from Liz Sly, Beirut bureau chief for the Washington Post.
