Kurdish fighters from the so-called Afrin Liberation Forces (a brand of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units) struck a supposed position of Turkish soldiers in the area of Sherava in the Syrian northern region of Afrin. According to the Kurdish group, 3 Turkish soldiers were killed and 3 others were injured. 2 vehicles belonging to Turkish forces were also destroyed.
The Turkish Defense Ministry has not commented on the incident yet. However, if the casualties really took place, the Turkish side will likely confirm them within a few days.
On the other hand, Kurdish rebels regularly overestimate losses of regular Turkish troops in their statements. The Afrin Liberation Forces often try to present casualties among Turkish proxies as casualties of the Turkish Army.
