ISTANBUL – Two Turkish soldiers were killed and three others injured after an attack in Syrian’s northwest Idlib region, Turkey’s defence ministry said on Saturday.

The troops had been on a “search and scanning operation”, it said. Idlib is the last major area of Syria still in rebel hands, and parts of it are jointly patrolled by Turkish and Russian forces.
