DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:10 P.M.) – Ankara’s versions of events regarding the death of a Turkish Army soldier on November 28 proved not entirely accurate, new footage released by Gerila TV indicates.

In a story covered extensively by Al-Masdar News yesterday, it was revealed that two Turkish soldiers were killed atop the Martyr Bager hill in the Cele district of Hakkari province due to an attack carried out by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

However, hours later Turkish Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu himself claimed that only one soldier, by the name of Yusuf Demiryürek, had died on this axis and claimed it to be an isolated accident in which the young man died from falling off a cliff.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan even sent condolences to Demiryürek’s family, reiterating claims that their relative had died in a freak accident.

Nevertheless, a video was released by the PKK media wing today showing two Turkish soldiers being struck from afar by a guided missile with the impact sending at least one of them – presumably Yusuf Demiryürek – flying off the hilltop towards certain death:
