0

The Turkish army is retaliating with artillery fire at Syrian government targets in Syria after an airstrike killed at least 29 Turkish soldiers in the northwestern Idlib province, two Turkish security officials said on Friday, Reuters reported.

“All known” Syrian government targets are under fire by Turkish air and land support units, Turkey’s communications director Fahrettin Altun said separately on Friday, according to the state-run Anadolu news agency. Turkey has decided to “respond in kind” to the attack by the Syrian government, Altun added.

Altun’s remarks came after an hours-long high level security meeting in Ankara chaired by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan following the Idlib incident.
