We reported early today that after Syrian air strike in Idlib province two Turkish soldiers were killed.

“As a result of an airstrike on our positions in Idlib province, two of our soldiers were killed and two more were injured. They immediately attacked the military facilities of the regime (Syrian President Bashar al-Assad),” reads the department’s Twitter account.

Also, as we reported this morning, the Turkish military and the militants supported by them tried three times to bring down Russian and Syrian military aircraft over the provinces of Idlib.

Accordign to local sources is about at least one Russian Su-34 fighter and Syrian fighter-bombers Su-22, which attacked the positions of jihadists in the southern part of Idlib province. The defeat of combat aircraft was avoided due to the timely shooting of heat traps.
