Syrian Army Targets Turkish Military Column in Southern Aleppo

The Syrian Army's artillery and missile units opened heavy fire at a convoy of Turkish military vehicles in Southern Aleppo, a Russian media outlet reported on Tuesday.

The Arabic-language website of RT reported that the artillery and missile units of the Syrian army targeted a Turkish army convoy by over 30 artillery shells and missiles near the town of al-Eis in Southern Aleppo.

In the meantime, media activists said that several Russian warplanes pounded the Turkish convoy that tried to go through the regions that are under the Syrian Army control near al-Eis and near the highway that connects Aleppo to Damascus.

They further said that two Turkish F-16 fighter jets flew over Kamari region where the Turkish military column was targeted by the Syrian artillery and missile units, adding that five Russian fighter jets were also flying over Abu al-Dhohour in Southeastern Idlib.


  1. One person was killed and two more were wounded in a roadside bomb attack on a Turkish military convoy in Syria’s Idlib on Tuesday, the Turkish army said.

    The attack, carried out by Kurdish militants as the convoy was in transit in northern Idlib, left one civilian worker dead and wounded a soldier and another civilian, the army said in a statement.

    The convoy was dispatched to Idlib as part of Turkey’s effort to help create a “de-escalation” zone there, under a deal brokered by Russia in August.

  2. A civilian support worker for the Turkish Armed Forces was martyred in a terrorist car bomb attack on a military convoy in Syria’s northwestern Idlib province, the Turkish General Staff said on Tuesday.

    In a statement, the military said terrorists detonated a vehicle while a Turkish military convoy deployed in Idlib as part of an international agreement to establish de-escalation zones was passing through.

    The statement also said a Turkish soldier and another civilian worker were injured in the explosion.

    The military also offered its condolences to the martyred civilian's family and speedy recovery to the wounded.

    The deployment in the northwestern region was launched last October under a deal reached with Russia and Iran during the Syrian peace talks in the Kazakh capital Astana.

    The establishment of de-escalation zones was agreed to in May between Turkey, which backs groups opposed to Syria's Bashar al-Assad regime, and Russia and Iran, who support the regime.
