The Turkish prime minister said Thursday that the country's army had issued a warning following the Syrian regime's deadly air attack on Turkish troops.

Three Turkish soldiers were killed and 10 others wounded Thursday in a suspected Syrian regime air attack close to the city of Al-Bab in northern Syria.

In his remarks during an interview on state-run broadcaster TRT, Yildirim said the cause of the attack was being investigated by Turkish officials.

"Our general staff's military contact with related officials is still continuing. The warning has been given to the officials, certainly and clearly, not to repeat the attack."
