(ANKARA, Turkey.) JUST IN: Four Turkish soldiers were killed in #Syria on Sunday, in their first fatalities as a result of direct confrontation between the countries since the start of the civil war in 2011: #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Feb.03: A shelling incident in Syria in which Turkey said four of its soldiers were killed may have been caused by the failure of the Turkish side to warn about the movement of their convoy, the Russian military said.“Units of the Turkish military conducted movement within the Idlib de-escalation zone during the nighttime from February 2 to February 3 without informing the Russian side and came under fire by the Syrian government troops, which were targeting terrorists west of Saraqib,” the Russian center for Syrian reconciliation said on Monday:

The statement stressed that there are established lines of communications between Russian forces in Syria and the Turkish command: It added that Turkish aircraft did not enter the Syrian airspace after the incident, contrary to some reports in the Turkish media, which said Ankara ordered airstrikes at Syrian positions in retaliation for the shelling.

Turkey says 4 troops killed & 9 wounded in shelling in Syria’s Idlib, points finger at Damascus: Turkish Defense Ministry earlier reported that four Turkish soldiers were killed and nine others injured in the shelling incident: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan responded quickly, promising to continue retaliating heavily to any attacks against Turkish forces in Syria’s Idlib Province: Idlib governorate is a designated “de-escalation zone” under agreements between Russia, Turkey and Iran.

Ankara is expected to use its influence among anti-government fighters controlling it to prevent hostilities with Damascus troops, eventually leading to a peaceful resolution: In practice, some jihadists in Idlib continue attacks at government-held parts of Syria and on several occasions launched drone attacks on the Russian air base in Latakia, ensuring continued fighting.
