One Turkish soldier was killed and nine others were wounded in an attack undertaken by the Syrian government forces in Idlib, Turkish Defense Ministry said late on March 3.

With the latest death, 57 Turkish soldiers have been killed in the conflict in the region since Turkey sent thousands of troops and military hardware there last month to support rebels fighting Syrian government forces.

The defense ministry said that 82 Syrian army targets were struck after the attack on Turkish forces and continued to be under fire. It did not specify exactly where or when the attack occurred.
