Must read

The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) allegedly burned alive two Turkish soldiers who it took hostage three weeks ago in the al-Bab region of northern Syria.

Solhaber has identified the soldiers as Fethi Şahin and Sefer Taş.

A news agency linked to ISIL said on Nov. 29 that ISIL forces had taken two Turkish soldiers captive in al-Bab.

Photos and a video allegedly of the two soldiers were shared online on ISIL accounts late on Thursday.

The video came a day after 16 Turkish soldiers were killed and 31 injured in ISIL attacks in al-Bab.

With the latest casualties, the total number of Turkish soldiers killed since August in Turkey’s Operation Euphrates Shield has reached 37, with 31 wounded.

The military said on Wednesday that it had killed 138 terrorists and destroyed 67 ISIL targets in al-Bab.

As part of Operation Euphrates Shield, Turkey sent tanks across the border to help Syrian rebels drive ISIL from the border city of Jarabulus on Aug. 24, in a dramatic escalation of its involvement in the Syrian civil war.
