BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 P.M.) – At least 68 soldiers from the Turkish Armed Forces have been killed since the start of Operation Olive Branch on January 20th, the pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported.

In addition to the 68 soldiers killed, the SOHR alleged that 341 rebels were killed as well, raising the death toll for the Turkish forces to 409.

Furthermore, the SOHR claimed that the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) 359 casualties, while their allies from the pro-government National Defense Forces (NDF) lost a total of 81 fighters.

The Turkish General Staff claims contrast the SOHR’s numbers, as they allege that more than 3,000 YPG fighters have been killed since January 20th.

These death tolls could not be verified by Al-Masdar.
