One soldier was killed and another is still missing after a cross border shooting with Islamic State fighters last week near the Turkish town of Kilis, further east. On Saturday that the missing soldier had been seen in a hospital run by Islamic State.
If confirmed, his capture could become a major challenge for Turkey, after it stepped up military action against Islamic State in July, opening its air bases to US led coalition war planes and launching air strikes.
Late last month, Islamic State released a video accusing Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan of 'treachery', and urged Turks to rise up against him.
