Turkey's national flag-carrier airline said it resumed flights on Saturday to the Iraqi Kurdish city of Arbil after suspending them for security reasons amid an offensive by Islamist militants.

However Turkish Airlines said in a statement that it would as a continued precaution only be flying to Arbil in daytime hours.

"Our flights to Arbil will resume. Arbil night flights will be shifted to daytime hours," Turkish Airlines said in a statement.

Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways announced on Saturday that it will reroute flights over Iraq in the wake of US air strikes on Islamist State (IS) fighters there.

The first US air strikes on Friday struck IS positions and at least one convoy of vehicles carrying militants west of Arbil.
