I will update asap
I've been taking some time to really really read the news reports regarding this alleged strike on Turkish soldiers attributed to Syria- Syria has yet to confirm or deny or say anything about this
Let's look at this article:
A brief recap :
The strike on the Turkish soldiers was attributed initially to ISIS- then a statement appeared on line attributed to "the turkish army" saying it was SAA. The statement is not connected to one individual or one spokesperson. Just "the Turkish Army" Who is "the Turkish Army" in this case. Curiously this incident occurred on the first anniversary of the Russian jet shootdown!
November 24/2015: Putin Warns After NATO Occupied Turkey Shot Down Russian Fighter Jet
" The incident came on the first anniversary of Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian military jet on the Turkish-Syrian border."A message? On such a providential date?
Initial reports attributed to attack to ISIS- Via Turkish media and SOHR.
SOHR is highly unlikely, given their agenda, to report the attack was conducted by ISIS if it was SAA- think about it!
"Turkish media had earlier blamed the attack on ISIL.
Adding to the confusion, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based opposition monitoring group, also said it was an "attack by IS".
Turkey’s army blamed the Syrian government for an air strike on Thursday in northern Syria that killed three Turkish soldiers –_Turkish media had earlier blamed the attack on ISIL.

-Turkey's Army... how is that defined?
-Nothing is coming out of Ankara
-One year anniversary of shootdown
-And nothing at Sana as of 5:00 est
******But wait, I have more!!!
There was no immediate comment from the Syrian military.(Unbelievable, truly!)
Direct confrontation between Nato-member Turkey and Syrian government forces, which are backed by allies including Russia, would mark a serious escalation in an already messy battlefield in northern Syria.From my post the other day: US & Turkey At "Cross- Purposes" in Syria? Whaaat?!?!
"As events unfold around al-Bab fears are growing that a Turkish-backed assault on the town could also spark a clash between Russia, Assad’s patron, and Turkey"Commentary from yours truly: The US would surely enjoy seeing Turkey and Russia in conflict- Will that happen? We shall see.. Definitely a volatile situation
The one year anniversary date of the jet shootdown- A US/NATO attempt one year ago to block Turkish/Russian peacemaking- Are we looking at a replay? The one year anniversary to the day!
