BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 P.M.) – A Turkish soldier was allegedly killed on Thursday in the northern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate, the Turkish Ministry of Defense announced, as reported by the Daily Sabah.

The Turkish Ministry of Defense said that one of their soldiers was killed by the People’s Protection Units (YPG) in the Afrin region of northwestern Aleppo; however, the retaliatory attack was launched by both the Syrian military and YPG.

The Syrian Army and YPG launched their retaliatory attack after the Turkish military heavily shelled their positions near the town of Tal Rifa’at in northern Aleppo.

As a result of the Turkish Army attack, at least six Syrian soldiers were wounded.

Today’s exchange marked the first time since the establishment of the Sochi agreement that the Turkish military and Syrian Arab Army have come to blows in northern Syria.

Let turkey and the the S.A.A. fight each other while the U S. And S.D.F. build up their forces. The U.S. should bring thaad and patriot missles systems.

You don’t even know what you’re talking about. THAAD is for high-altitude missile intercepts (ICBMs). That shows your lack of knowledge on the situation, not to mention military hardware. Go play with your toys.
