Turkish tank hit by missile in northern Syria, three soldiers killed

The Defense Ministry in Ankara announced Friday that three Turkish soldiers were killed and another was injured earlier in the day when a Turkish tank was hit by an antitank missile in northern Syria. The Islamic State organization claimed responsibility for the attack. As DEBKAfile has reported, the area of Turkey's southern border and the strip that Turkish forces invaded in northern Syria have not been "cleansed" of ISIS forces, contrary to claims by Ankara.
