4 Syrian fighters, Turkish soldier killed in northern Syria operation
At least four Syrian National Army (SNA) fighters were killed in a YPG/PKK ambush amid Turkey's ongoing Operation Peace Spring in northern Syria, SNA sources said Friday (October 11).

According to the sources, terrorists masquerading as fellow fighters ambushed the SNA forces and took villagers hostage in Dadat village in the district of Tal Abyad.

Entering the village to take security precautions, the SNA fighters were attacked by YPG/PKK terrorists. At least four SNA members were martyred during the clash before retreating.

SNA forces later re-entered the village, clearing it of terrorists.

Separately, one Turkish soldier was killed and three others injured in an attack by PKK/YPG terrorists during Operation Peace Spring in northern Syria, Turkey’s Defense Ministry said Friday.

The newly launched anti-terror operation liberated 11 villages in Tal Abyad town and Ras al-Ayn city from terrorists on Thursday.

The Syrian National Army (SNA) entered territory east of the Euphrates River in northern Syria on Thursday to support Turkey's Operation Peace Spring.

Turkey on Wednesday launched Operation Peace Spring east of the Euphrates River in northern Syria, to secure its borders and Syria’s territorial integrity, by eliminating terrorist elements and to ensure the safe return of Syrian refugees.
