Turkey says its overnight death toll up to six in Syria's Idlib

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - A Turkish soldier and a civilian member of the Turkish forces died as a result of wounds inflicted by Syrian government forces’ shelling in Idlib on Monday, raising the death toll to six from four in the incident, Turkey’s defence ministry said.
