Turkish forces hit 82 Assad regime targets, destroy 9 tanks, 2 howitzers, 6 rockets, 2 vehicles, says Defense Ministry

Turkey’s Operation Spring Shield in northwestern Syria hit 82 Assad regime targets, destroyed nine tanks, two howitzers, six rockets, and two vehicles, and neutralized 299 regime elements, said the National Defense Ministry late Tuesday (March 3). 

Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" to imply the elements in question surrendered or were killed or captured.

Turkish Defense Ministry said on Tuesday afternoon that Turkish F-16 jet downed an Assad regime an L-39 warplane near Maarat al-Numan.

In addition, Assad regime attacks killed one soldier and wounded nine in the northwestern Idlib, said a ministry statement.

Turkey launched Operation Spring Shield on Sunday after at least 34 Turkish soldiers were killed in an Assad regime airstrike in Idlib.
