Ankara has claimed that four Turkish soldiers were killed and another nine were injured after they came under heavy shelling in the terrorist-held province of Idlib while blaming Syrian Army forces for the attack.

The ministry said that the Turkish forces retaliated by destroying unspecified targets in the region.

The incident comes shortly after a large Turkish military convoy – consisting of some 50 armored vehicles, trucks carrying tanks, and armored personnel carriers – was reported to have entered Idlib through Kafr Loosen crossing.

Months after its military offensive in Syria which was criticized by the international community, a large Turkish military convoy entered Syrian territory. The three Turkish military convoys consisting of tanks, armored vehicles, troop carriers, and military and logistic equipment headed towards Idlib and Aleppo.
