More than 30 Turkish soldiers killed in Syria's Idlib
The number of Turkish soldiers killed in Syria's Idlib province has grown to 33, governor of Turkey's Hatay province Rahmi Dogan said.
"The number of killed soldiers increased to 33. There is no threat to the lives of the injured soldiers," Dogan told TRT channel.
Earlier reports said that 29 Turkish soldiers were killed and 36 more were injured.
The administration of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said after an emergency session that Turkish forces are delivering airstrikes at the positions of Syrian government forces in response to shellings at Turkish soldiers in Idlib.
Turkish President's top press aide Fahrettin Altun said Turkey's military retaliated against all known positions of the regime after the air strike. He called on the international community to fulfil its responsibilities to end the violence in Idlib and the Bashar Assad regime's "crimes against humanity".
