Eight wounded Free Syrian Army fighters were taken to a hospital in southeastern Turkey late Tuesday, a security source told Anadolu Agency.
The fighters, who were taken to Kilis State Hospital, were injured in clashes with ISIL terrorists in Aleppo’s western district of Azez, according to sources who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.
Syria has been locked in a vicious civil war since 2011 when the Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests – which erupted as part of the Arab Spring uprisings – with unexpected ferocity.
Since then, more than a quarter of a million people have been killed and more than 10 million displaced across the war-battered country, according to the UN.
The Syrian Center for Policy Research, however, put the death toll from the six-year conflict at more than 470,000 people.
