(Reuters) Prime Minister Binali Yildirim warned of new sectarian clashes in Iraq after a planned offensive on Mosul.
Speaking in parliament, Yildirim said Turkey’s operations in Syria would continue until “all terrorist groups” around the city of Al-Bab were eradicated .

He said U.S.-led plans for an assault on the Iraqi city of Mosul were not clear and that there was a risk Mosul could become the scene of new sectarian clashes after any operation to remove Islamic State from the area.
