Syrian soldiers killed in clashes with Turkish-led forces

EU attitude toward Turkey far from constructive Erdogan

The pelting of the Turkish-Russian patrol occurred east of the border town of Qamishli, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory, an opposition war monitor, and the Kurdish Hawar news agency. He noted that although the EU "hates" the Turkish leader, European nations can not but listen to what he has to say.

"Turkey can count on our support within the best of our abilities", Orban said during a joint press conference in Budapest, referencing Ankara's plans to rebuild areas it now occupies following a military operation against Kurdish militia groups in the region.

A young man was run over by one of the large armoured vehicles and rushed to hospital in the town of Derik.

Speaking to reporters before a visit to Hungary, Erdogan said clashes in Syria were continuing, with 11 fighters from the Turkey-backed rebel Syrian National Army killed Thursday.

Turkey says it will start sending back captured Islamic State group members to their countries of origin next week.


Last month, Orban delayed a joint European Union statement condemning Turkey's military offensive in northern Syria against Kurdish forces.

Earlier this week, Soylu said Turkey had almost 1,200 foreign members of Daesh in custody, and had captured 287 during its recent operation in northern Syria. It claimed the patrols ended up being supported by drones, however supplied no even additional particulars.

A few deals under the Russian mediation have been reached since October 9, which led to the halt of the fights in some areas and the entry of Syrian troops to Kurdish-held areas on the Syrian-Turkish border. Moscow has brokered a shaky truce in northern Syria, but sporadic clashes have continued.

Turkish officials have complained that YPG/PKK terrorists kept attacking Turkish forces and its allies during the 120-hour pause agreed to with the USA, and also that despite the deal with Russian Federation, the YPG/PKK terrorists failed to withdraw. It later reported that government forces took the village from Turkey-backed opposition fighters.

Although the two countries agreed in 2013 to increase bilateral trade to $5 billion (€4.5 billion), they have yet to reach that goal, with trade volume amounting to around $3 billion previous year, reported German magazine Der Spiegel.
