On March 2, another Turkish soldier, Mustafa Muhammed AK, was killed by Syrian Army strikes in the region of Greater Idlib, the Turkish Defense Ministry reported. This incident increased the total confirmed casualties of the Turkish Army in Syria’s Idlib to approximately 55.

Meanwhile, the United States announced that it will not provide Turkey with an air support in its Idlib gamble. He added that the two countries were also discussing Ankara’s request for the temporary deployment of US Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems. This request was also in fact rejected.

“I should add that the the United States is looking at providing increased humanitarian aid for the persons in Syria. That’s one thing I had a conversation with [Secretary of State Mike Pompeo] about that,” Esper said.
