A Turkish soldier, who was injured in Syria's northwestern Idlib in April, succumbed to his injuries, the National Defense Ministry said on June 7.
The ministry said the soldier was injured during Turkey's Operation Peace Spring and offered condolences to the family of the killed soldier, the Turkish Armed Forces and the Turkish nation.
Turkey has said that even though the humanitarian crisis in Idlib, Syria is partially off the agenda due to the coronavirus pandemic, it should not be ignored by world leaders.
Addressing an aid meeting in southern Hatay province on June 7, the country's interior minister said Turkey has managed to deal with the virus outbreak amid a migration wave.
Nazhan Hamad, who fled the Syrian war to take refuge in Turkey, is teaching karate to Syrian orphans and Turkish children in the Reyhanlı district of the southern province of Hatay.
When in Syria, Namad served in the national karate team, winning three gold, two silver and one bronze medals in local competitions.
