Turkish and Syrian troops engage in deadly flare-up

AIR PICS
Turkish and Syrian troops traded deadly fire in Syria's northwest region today. An airstrike also killed nine civilians in the same area. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the overnight exchange began with regime shelling on Turkish positions in Idlib. Turkey's Defence Ministry said, the attack killed four Turkish soldiers and wounded nine others despite previous coordination on where Ankara's forces would be in the region. The Russian Defence Ministry said, Ankara had failed to give prior warning of its troop movements at the time of the incident.

According to reports, retaliatory rocket attacks by Ankara on regime positions later killed at least 13 Syrian Government troops and wounded 20 others in Idlib and the neighboring provinces of Hama and Latakia.

Meanwhile, the Syrian state news agency SANA said, the Syrian army had not suffered any casualties. The tit-for-tat shelling between Damascus and Ankara was the deadliest since Turkey deployed troops in Syria in 2016 and escalated tensions between the conflict's two top foreign brokers.

Syria's civil war has killed more than 3,80,000 people since it started in 2011 with the brutal repression of anti-government protests.
