Two Turkish soldiers were killed in terrorist attacks in northern Syria and northern Iraq, the Turkey’s National Defense Ministry said Monday (December 2).

One soldier died at the hospital after being critically injured by a mortar attack in the Operation Peace Spring zone in northern Syria, the ministry said.

The other was killed during Operation Claw in northern Iraq, where another soldier was also injured.

The ministry noted that Turkish security forces retaliated following the attacks.

On Oct. 9, Turkey launched Operation Peace Spring to eliminate People's Protection Units (YPG) terrorists from northern Syria east of the Euphrates River in order to secure Turkey's borders, aid in the safe return of Syrian refugees and ensure Syria's territorial integrity.
