Near Suruc, Turkey (CNN) - Could ISIS fighters be training as warplane pilots capable of turning their weapons on coalition aircraft?
That's the worrying prospect suggested by an unverified report from the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights that ISIS has three warplanes in its possession in northern Syria.
The Syrian opposition group also claims, citing reliable sources in Syria, that former Iraqi military officers are training members of the Sunni extremist militant group to fly them.
(CNN) - Turkey's foreign minister insisted Thursday that it's not "realistic" for the world to expect it to go it alone in launching a ground operation against ISIS, even as a monitoring group said the extremists had seized a chunk of a key battleground town near its border.
Speaking alongside visiting NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Mevlut Cavusoglu said that airstrikes alone cannot change the balance of power or "clean the whole region of ISIS and other terrorists."
The remarks will dismay many in Turkey who have demanded military intervention in Syria.
Turkey has taken in more than 1.5 million people from Syria and Iraq, Cavusoglu said, including some 200,000 Syrians from the Kobani region in recent days.
Madrid (CNN) - Spanish health authorities said Tuesday they are monitoring three more potential cases of Ebola, a day after a nurse's assistant became the first person known to have contracted Ebola outside Africa in the current outbreak.
The woman helped treat two Spanish missionaries, both of whom had contracted Ebola in West Africa, one in Liberia and the other in Sierra Leone. Both died after returning to Spain.
Glasgow, Scotland (CNN) - Voters in Scotland made their choice Thursday - remain part of the United Kingdom, or form their own independent nation.
Now, the counting of the votes begins.
Polls at more than 5,500 stations across 32 districts, from the remote highlands and islands to the big cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, closed at 10 p.m. local time (5 p.m. ET). People still in line to vote at that time were allowed to cast ballots.
Kiev, Ukraine (CNN) - "Russia has launched large-scale incursions into Ukraine," a British government source said Friday, moving between 4,000 to 5,000 troops into its western neighbor's territory, with some 20,000 more perched on the border.
The statement comes despite Moscow's fervent claims its forces aren't in Ukraine, and significantly more than a U.S. official's earlier claim of 1,000 Russian troops.
The British source said the Russian troops are aligned in "formed units" and taking part in fighting around Luhansk and Donetsk.
