Responding to recent Turkish losses in Syria, Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu told Anadolu Agency on Friday: "The news of our soldiers being martyred saddens us terribly."

Axar.az reports that, Sixteen Turkish soldiers were martyred this week in Syria's Al-Bab, Defense Minister Fikri Isik confirmed on Thursday.

"But if Turkey started this operation (Operation Euphrates Shield) to secure its own future, we need to endure the pain," Kilicdaroglu added.

Expressing condolences to both the families of recently martyred Turkish soldiers in Syria and those martyred in Turkey fighting the PKK, Kilicdaroglu said he hoped the number of casualties would not increase.

According to Defense Minister Isik, over 1,000 Daesh terrorists have been killed since the beginning of the Euphrates Shield operation.
