    In Syria, 26 Syrian soldiers were killed in Turkish drone strikes yesterday.

    Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said, Turkish drones targeted positions of the regime forces in the Idlib and Aleppo countryside and killed 26 members of the Syrian army.

    The apparent retaliation came after 33 Turkish soldiers were killed in an airstrike by Syrian regime forces on Thursday. A 34th soldier later died from his injuries.

    Russia-backed regime forces have since December led a military offensive against the last major rebel stronghold of Idlib in northwestern Syria, where Turkey supports some rebel groups.
