As a result of the attack by the Syrian military, we are talking about significant losses in the ranks of the Turkish troops, in particular, a number of sources report at least 12 dead and 8 wounded.

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.

Considering the information provided by the Syrian sources, in a few minutes at least 60 rockets were fired at the positions of the Turkish military and jihadists, after which two tactical missiles of the Tochka OTRK were launched.

Turkey has not yet responded to media inquiries about losses and injuries among the Turkish military, however, earlier it was reported that Ankara is trying in every possible way to hide the total number of victims.

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.
