DAMASCUS, (BM) – A Turkish military vehicle was blown up by a makeshift explosive device (MED) in the southern Syrian province of Idlib, learned BulgarianMilitary.com according several sources and news agency FAN.
According to unconfirmed information, as a result of an incident in the area controlled by the militants of the village of Sfukhon, one soldier of the Turkish army was injured. In addition, one piece of equipment was damaged.
The incident in Sfuhon was the second militant attack on the Turkish military in a week. On March 19, two Turkish soldiers died in a militant attack during an engineering reconnaissance on the M4 highway in Idlib.
Starting March 15, Russia and Turkey have been conducting joint patrols along the Aleppo-Latakia (M4) highway, along which a security corridor will be provided. The decision to patrol was made following talks between Russian and Turkish presidents Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the Kremlin on March 5.
The parties reaffirmed their commitment to the “Astana format” and announced the introduction of a ceasefire on the night of March 5-6. Russia and Turkey also agreed to jointly patrol the M4 highway in Syria and pledged to maintain Syrian state sovereignty.
