U.S. believes Russia killed dozens of Turkish soldiers in Syria: Pompeo

The United States believes Russia has killed dozens of Turkish military personnel in the course of their military operations in Syria, and that Washington continued to offer support to its NATO ally Turkey, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Tuesday.

Speaking at a press conference at U.S. State Department, Pompeo did not specify where or during which incident the Turkish soldiers were killed. Last month, an airstrike that Ankara said was carried out by the Syrian government forces killed at least 34 Turkish soldiers.
