Four Turkish soldiers have been killed in shelling by Syrian government forces in northwest Syria’s Idlib region, according to Turkey’s defence ministry.
The attack on Monday also left nine troops wounded, one of them seriously.
The ministry said Turkish forces retaliated against the attack and destroyed targets in the Idlib region, the last rebel-held stronghold in war-torn Syria.
It added that the Syrian forces carried out the shelling despite being previously notified of the positions of the Turkish forces.
