Isil calls on supporters to fight ‘traitor’ Turkey

Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil) has publicly called on its supporters to attack Turkey for the first time, after Ankara allied itself with Washington against the jihadist group.

In a video issued on Monday, an Isil spokesman calls Turkish president Recep Tayep Erdogan a “tyrant traitor” and exhorts its followers inside the country to rise up “wherever they are and however they can” against the government.
