Turkey said Monday the Syrian border region must be "completely cleansed" from ISIS, after a weekend suicide bombing in Gaziantep blamed on the extremists left at least 54 dead.In a sign of a key battle to come, Syrian rebel fighters have amassed on the Turkish side of the border in preparation for an offensive on the town of Jarablus, ISIS's last major transit point on the Syrian side of the border. A child suicide bomber, aged "between 12 and 14", is suspected of having carried out the attack late Saturday in the southeastern city of Gaziantep near the Syrian border on the orders of ISIS, according to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.Cavusoglu said Turkey has already taken an "active" role in the fight against ISIS, allowing coalition forces to use a key air base in the south of the country for strikes on the extremist group.
