DAMASCUS, (BM) – An attempt by the Turkish military to launch a large-scale attack on the positions of the Syrian troops was frustrated by a large missile strike using both MLRS and tactical missile weapons, learned BulgarianMilitary.com according local sources.

Some sources shared in Twitter a video of Turkish UH-60 helicopter trying to evacuates the wounded and the dead.
According local source it’s about at least three military helicopters, which confirms the information about two dozen dead and wounded in the ranks of the Turkish army.

In February, fierce battles broke out in Idlib between government troops and militants supported by Turkey: at the beginning of this year, the Syrian army launched a large-scale offensive. Turkey, whose observation posts were behind the front line, demanded that Damascus withdraw troops, strengthened support for its loyal militants, and after the death of several dozen of its military as a result of Syrian air strikes, announced the launch of the Spring Shield operation in the region.
