BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 P.M.) – Several reports from northwestern Syria have claimed that dozens of Turkish soldiers were killed this evening after an airstrike struck their positions inside the Idlib Governorate.

According to the Step News Agency, a large number of Turkish soldiers were killed and many more wounded by an airstrike in the Idlib Governorate.

These claims have mostly been made by opposition media and have yet to be confirmed by the Turkish Armed Forces.

However, if true, this would be the deadliest day for the Turkish Armed Forces in Syria, as three soldiers were reportedly killed earlier today.

A video has since surfaced as well showing the Turkish Armed Forces seeking shelter from an airstrike carried out by what is likely the Syrian or Russian air forces.

Update (10:32 P.M.) – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reports 34 Turkish soldiers killed in an air raid near the towns of Al-Barah an Bilioun in southern Idlib.

Update (10:51 P.M.) – Governor of the Hatay Province says 9 soldiers from the Turkish military were killed this evening after they were attacked by the Syrian military.

Update (11:39 P.M.) – Governor of Hatay Province says death toll rises from 9 to 22.

That’s what you get when you wage war. And the victims are the soldiers and their family. Not Erdogan … at t

Though the Syrian government forces have every right to target foreign aggressors and invaders of their sovereign land, it’s probably another false flag attack to justify a fully fledged Turkish aggression against the Syrian government forces. To be remembered that back in 2012 the Turkish regime fabricated many such false flag attacks by the Syrian Government Forces manning the Turkish/Syria border posts on Turkish soil to justify the unprovoked aggression and destruction of these Syrian Government border posts to permit the subsequent flooding from Turkey of Syrian sovereign land by Erdogan’s foreign mercenary terrorists hailing from more than 80 different… Read more »

Sounds more like a Russian “message” rather than a SyAAF strike…
Russia should stop with “messages” and retain and simply create a no drive zone for anything related with cockroaches operations. Once left with no vehicles and no artillery, pest control on jihadis will become much easier.

You enter a warzone illegally and your soldiers get killed and equipment destroyed.
You don’t want that, you stay in your home bases and resort to what you do best; empty threats, illusions of invincibility and the long lost Ottoman empire.
Stay home and dream on, while SAA is claiming their country from your buddies; the idiot terrorists.

I guess SAA used SS-21 ballistic missile with cluster ammunition and spiced up the show with 9K58 Smerch 300mm Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS).
