At least five Turkish soldiers were killed when a car bomb targeted their convoy in northern Syria near Turkey overnight, state news agency SANA reported earlier on Thursday.
The explosion targeted the Turkish convoy in the city of Jarablus in northern Aleppo province when it was en route to a Turkish-run base on the outskirts of the city, said SANA.
It added that 12 other Turkish soldiers were wounded and taken across the border to Turkish hospitals.
The bombing is the latest in a series of explosions targeting Turkey-backed rebels and Turkish forces in northern Syria since Ankara launched an offensive against the Kurdish forces in northern Syria in October.
