Turkish soldier killed on Syrian border

131 Days ago

Ankara: A Turkish soldier has been killed in a knife attack during an operation by security forces against a group trying to enter Turkish territory illegally from Syria, the army said.

The incident took place on Sunday evening in the Yayladagi area of southern Hatay province, according to the Turkish army. It named the dead soldier as Mustafa Uygun.

Hatay's governor Ercan Topaca denied allegations that Turkish forces had intervened on Syrian territory.

Turkey shelled targets of Kurdish fighters in northern Syria at the weekend, but faced international calls to stop the artillery bombardments. (IANS)
