ISTANBUL (TURKEY) (AFP) – One Turkish soldier was killed and three more wounded on Saturday in a rocket attack on two tanks taking part in Turkey’s military offensive in northern Syria, the Dogan news agency and NTV television said.

The tanks were hit in the area of the Syrian town of Jarabulus, which Turkish forces helped pro-Ankara rebels seize from jihadists on Wednesday. The reports said that the rockets had been fired from an area where the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) militia has been active.
