Turkish military about new losses in Syria's Afrin

Twenty one Turkish soldiers have died since the beginning of the operation. These numbers have not been independently confirmed, and Ankara denies the claim.

Nebenzia said US Ambassador Nikki Haley raised the issue of the airstrikes first at a closed council meeting Thursday where she defended the bombing that the US military says killed about 100 fighters. "And this poses a threat to us", he added.

On January 20, Turkey launched a military operation against the Kurdish PeopleĀ“s Protection Units (YPG) militia in its western enclave of Afrin, backing Syrian rebels with air strikes and ground troops.

The conflict in Syria is many-sided, with complex battle lines between multiple rebel factions, Islamist groups, government-backed troops and US and Russian forces.

The battle underscored the competing global and regional powers fighting in Syria and the myriad conflicts they are prosecuting on Syrian territory almost seven years into the civil war.

Tensions have risen between Washington and Ankara in recent months with Turkey frustrated at Trump's forces providing support to Kurdish fighters in the north of Syria.

The previous summit was held in the Russian Black Sea city of Sochi on November 22.
