Turkey struck Syrian position using Bayraktar TB2 drones reported Turkish newspaper TRD. The drones are said to have flown initially near the Syrian-Turkish border or over areas controlled by the Turkish military; however, the drones entered the airspace controlled by the Syrian army or Kurds.
This is the first large-scale attack by Turkish drones since Turkey announced the seizure of military operations in Syria.
According to Turkish TRD news, Turkey carried out regular surveillance missions over Syria, and Turkish drones hit the city of Ain al-Arab. The target was a car with members of the Syrian Democratic Forces inside, although Ankara does not comment on killing on Kurdish leader.
In addition to the strike in Ain al-Arab, a Turkish Bayraktar TB2 drone struck at a Syrian military base located between Hama and Homs. As a result of the drone attack, the Turkish drone struck the Syrian weapons depo located in Idlib.
