Syria: Turkish soldier killed, five lightly wounded in clashes

One Turkish soldier was killed and five more were lightly wounded in clashes with Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants in northern Syria, the Turkish military said on Nov. 25.

In addition, four Turkey-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters were also killed and 25 injured in the clashes over the last 24 hours, the military said in a statement.

On Nov. 24, three Turkish soldiers were killed in what the military said was a suspected Syrian air strike, the first such deaths at the hands of Syrian government forces since Ankara launched a cross-border incursion into Syria in August.

Turkey said it would retaliate against the attacks.
