Turkish soldiers killed by Syrian air strike: Military

The Turkish military has said that three of its soldiers have been killed and 10 more wounded in Syria by an air strike allegedly launched by Syrian government forces.

A statement from the Turkish armed forces on its website said that the attack occurred at 3:30am local time [00:30 GMT] on Thursday.

"In the air strike assessed to have been by Syrian regime forces, three of our heroic soldiers were killed and 10 soldiers wounded, one seriously," it said in the statement.

It did not say where the attack occurred, but Turkish news media said the location was near the northern Syrian city of Al Bab.

"If confirmed, this could be a major escalation because it would be the first time that Turkish troops have been killed in a Syrian air strike," said Al Jazeera's Osama Bin Javaid, reporting from Gaziantep on the Turkish side of the Turkish-Syrian border.

"The Turkish military statement says, it believed so far that it was a Syrian air strike, which killed its troops. But we have not had any confirmation from them after that."
