UN 'Considering New Resolution' For 30-Day Syria Cease-Fire

Civilian death toll increases in Eastern Ghouta amid intensified regime attacks

"One of the two Atak helicopters of ours operating on Afrin region unfortunately collapsed. Two heroic members of Turkish Armed Forces were martyred".

A total of 19 targets were destroyed on the 23rd day of the counter-terror operation, killing 86 terrorists, the statement elaborated. However, he said that the cause of the incident is still unclear.

More than 20 Turkish soldiers and 150 YPG fighters have been killed since the military offensive began, he said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan tells the ruling party Saturday in Istanbul about the crash. "We're at war", Erdoğan said. We are in a war. "Maybe one of our helicopters is gone, but they will pay for this not in kind, but so much more".

The Turkish military later said nine more soldiers were killed in separate incidents but did not give details.

According to Turkish General Staff, the operation aims to establish security and stability along Turkish borders and the region as well as to protect the Syrian people from the oppression and cruelty of terrorists.

United Nations human rights chief Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein on Saturday accused Syrian forces of carrying out "no-holds-barred" military offensives after a spike in violence left hundreds of civilians dead.

"Additionally, Syrian pro-regime forces maneuvered T-55 and T-72 main battle tanks with supporting mortar fire in what appears to be a coordinated attack on Syrian Democratic Forces approximately 8 kilometers (5 miles) east of the Euphrates River de-confliction line in Khusham, Syria", Veale said.
