ANKARA (Reuters) - One Turkish soldier was killed and five more were lightly wounded in clashes with Islamic State militants in northern Syria, the Turkish military said on Friday.
In addition, four Turkey-backed rebels were also killed and 25 injured in the clashes over the last 24 hours, the military said in a statement.
On Thursday, 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.
