Video: ISIL 'driven out' from Turkey-Syria border

Turkish forces and Syrian rebels have driven out the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group from its remaining territory along the Syrian-Turkish border, Binali Yildirim, Turkey's prime minister, has said.

The Free Syrian Army backed by the Turkish military secured a 91km stretch of the border from the town of Azaz to Jarabulus.

Meanwhile in Aleppo, the Syrian military says it has recaptured areas of the city lost to rebels last month.

Al Jazeera’s Victoria Gatenby explains.
