One more Turkish soldier wounded in an Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) attack in Syria’s al-Bab region died on Friday, increasing the number of troops killed during Turkey’s Operation Euphrates Shield to 44.

Thirty-three-year-old Selçuk Erdoğan had been undergoing medical care since the attack on Dec. 21.

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.
