1 more soldier dies, 4 wounded in al-Bab


The Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) said in a statement on Monday that one soldier died and four were wounded in clashes with Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorists in Syria’s al-Bab region.

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.

The number of Turkish soldiers killed during Operation Euphrates Shield has reached 73 with the latest loss.
