Turkey will no longer prevent Syrian refugees from entering Europe, a Turkish official said, as authorities announced at least 29 of its soldiers had been killed in Syria.

Under a 2016 agreement between Turkey and the EU, Ankara pledged to work to stop migrants crossing the Aegean.

The statement came shortly after local authorities in southern Turkey announced that a number of Turkish troops had been killed in airstrikes in Syria’s northern Idlib province. Ankara has sent thousands of soldiers to Idlib, which is held by Turkish-backed rebels, in an attempt to halt an advance by Syrian regime forces and their Russian allies.
