    Turkey is taking necessary measures along its 150 km border with the Syrian province of Idlib, where militants linked to a former Al Qaeda-affiliate have taken control, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Friday.

    Yildirim was speaking a day after Turkey's customs minister said Turkish authorities will limit movement of non-humanitarian goods at the Bab al-Hawa border crossing into Idlib because the Syrian side is controlled by a "terrorist organisation."

    President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday the border crossing would be kept open for humanitarian aid but weapons would not be allowed across.
