Turkey’s national defense minister and two top generals on Friday (February 28) visited soldiers wounded by an Assad regime airstrike in Idlib, northwestern Syria.

After visiting the tactical command center, Hulusi Akar went to the hospital in the southern Hatay province, near the Syria border, with Land Forces Commander Umit Dundar and Air Forces Commander Hasan Kucukakyuz.

Doctors at the hospital told Akar and the generals about the soldiers’ conditions.

Late Thursday, 33 Turkish soldiers and 32 others were injured in a Russia-backed Assad regime airstrike in northwestern Syria's Idlib.

In the wake of the attack ­– the worst of a number of Assad regime attacks this year ­– Ankara has vowed to retaliate against the “illegitimate” Assad regime.
