DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:20 A.M.) – The Turkish regime accused the Syrian Air Force of killing three of their soldiers in the eastern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate on Thursday.

According to a statement released by the Turkish Armed Forces, the Syrian Air Force was conducting airstrikes near the key town of Al-Bab, when one of their bombs hit Turkish military positions in the area.

The Syrian Ministry of Defense has not commented on this matter, despite the allegations made by Ankara on Thursday.

The Syrian Air Force has been targeting the islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) militants in the Al-Bab Plateau and Deir Hafer Plains lately; furthermore, they have never had any confrontation with the Turkish-backed rebels, so the claim is rather odd.

Al-Masdar News reached out to sources at the Kuweires Military Airport; however, they were not available to comment on the matter.
