BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:10 A.M.) – The Turkish Ministry of Defense announced that a Turkish soldier was killed and two others wounded in an attack on an armored armored ambulance in the Idlib Governorate.
A statement from the ministry revealed that the Turkish forces immediately set their targets and responded by firing at the source of the attack, without mentioning who carried out it or the place where it occurred.
No further details were released regarding the attack.
This is the second attack on the Turkish military in the last ten days, with the previous bombing blamed on the foreigner-led Turkestan Islamic Party (TIP).
Turkey justified the presence of its forces in the Syrian governorate of Idlib by its intention to prevent the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) from extending its control over the area, which represents the last bastion of the Syrian armed opposition in the country.
In early March, the talks in Moscow between Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan resulted in a ceasefire agreement in Idlib, which ended the clashes between Syrian and Turkish forces in the region.
