Four Turkish soldiers killed in northern Syria
Turkey's Defense Ministry on Jan. 9 announced that four Turkish soldiers were killed during an anti-terror operation in Syria.
The soldiers were killed by a vehicle bomb attack during a road control in the Operation Peace Spring zone, the statement said.
The ministry also extended its condolences to the grieving families in the statement.
Since 2016, Turkey has launched a trio of successful anti-terrorist operations across its border into northern Syria to prevent the formation of a terrorist corridor there: Operations Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), and Peace Spring (October 2019).
