The fighting, in which 33 Turkish soldiers were also wounded, is some of the deadliest yet in Turkey’s nearly four-month-old “Euphrates Shield” operation in northern Syria.

Earlier ISIS propagandists have released pictures of the strikes on Turkish Leopard-2 main battle tanks in Syria.

German-made Leopard 2A4 tanks operated by the Turkish Armed Forces have been deployed to Syria for the first time since the start of Turkey’s Euphrates Shield incursion.
