Turkey Claims 184 Syrian Soldiers ‘Neutralized’ in 24 Hours

On Thursday, the Turkish Defense Ministry said that the land and air forces involved in Operation Spring Shield, against the Syrian Arab Army in Idleb, continued successfully throughout the night.

“Over the last 24 hours, Operation Spring Shield has neutralized, 184 elements of the Syrian regime and four tanks, five artillery, three anti-tank and 12 military vehicles were destroyed,” according to the Turkish Anadolu Agency . 

The Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said on Wednesday that, “the Syrian regime has lost more than 3,200 of its elements since the launch of Operation Spring Shield,” stressing that, “Turkey will not allow the blood of its martyrs to be wasted. ” 

Meanwhile, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad announced that his country has not taken any hostile action against Turkey.

Assad told the TV channel Russia 24 on Wednesday: “What hostile acts has Syria taken against Turkey? There are none. There are cases of marriage between Turks and Syrians, there are Turkish-Syrian families, there are common life interests, there is a historical convergence between cultures; therefore, it makes no sense that we have differences. ”
