Turkey hits back after soldiers killed in Syrian gov’t shelling

Published on February 4, 2020 by

Turkey says its military has hit several Syrian government targets, killing dozens of troops in the rebel-held Idlib province in Syria.
The raids were launched in response to a Syrian government attack which killed five Turkish soldiers and three civilians.
This has put the Syrian and Turkish governments in direct confrontation for the first time and risks irking Russia, which backs Syrian forces.
