Syrian government forces have attacked a Turkish observation point in Syria's Idlib province, Turkey's Defence Ministry said on Thursday, in what is assessed to be a deliberate attack involving 35 mortar shells.

Three Turkish soldiers were slightly wounded in the attack, the defence ministry said in a statement, and some equipment and facilities were damaged. Ankara has made representations to Moscow about the incident, it said.
