Ras Al-Ain bomb attacks cause the highest daily death toll ever among Turkish soldiers

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights obtained more details about the two explosions which hit NE Syria yesterday.

Sources informed SOHR that seven Turkish soldiers were killed in the car-bomb attack that targeted their checkpoint near Abdeen Gas Station in Um Oshbah village in Ras Al-Ain countryside (Sere Kaniye). The death toll is expected to increase due to the presence of seven other injuries including five whose conditions are critical.

SOHR also documented the killing of six members of the “National Army” after the explosion of a car bomb at a joint checkpoint between the Turkish forces and the National Army, in Al-Arba’in village in the same countryside.

It is noteworthy that this has been the largest death toll ever among Turkish forces in a single attack since Turkey started their military operations in Syria.
