SOHR: 2 Turkish soldiers killed by roadside bomb in Syria’s Idlib

Two Turkish soldiers were killed and four others wounded on Friday evening by a roadside bomb in Syria’s northwestern province of Idlib, a war monitor reported.

The bombing targeted Turkish military vehicles near the Maarrat Misrin area in the northern countryside of Idlib, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The attack came after a Turkish-backed rebel group arrested a fighter from a rival group in Idlib, the Britain-based watchdog added.

A total of six Turkish soldiers have been killed over the past 35 days in the region by a rebel group fighting against the Turkish forces and Turkey-backed rebels.

The Turkish forces support multiple rebel groups in northern Syria, mainly in the provinces of Idlib and Aleppo.
