One Turkish soldier has died and four others were injured in an Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) attack in Syria’s al-Bab region, which has increased the number of Turkish soldiers killed during Turkey’s Operation Euphrates Shield to 43.

The injured soldiers were taken to hospitals in Kilis and Gaziantep by ambulance and helicopter.

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