Nato on ISISAmbassadors from 28 Nato countries are holding an emergency meeting in Brussels to discuss Turkey’s military campaign against the Islamic State and Kurdish militants.

Turkey was a reluctant partner in the U.S. coalition against ISIS, but over the past few days, it had bombed ISIS and Kurdish positions.

Turkey is also backing plans for a buffer zone on the border with Syria.

Prime Minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, said that he expected his country’s allies to show solidarity and support for its campaign.

Meanwhile, Turkish police have continued to arrest suspected members of  the ISIS, PKK and leftist groups.

They have, however, arrested more than 1,000 suspects  over the past week.
