SANA's reporter said the aid convoy is carrying food and medina and other relief supplies to support the residents of Afrin in the face Turkey's ongoing act of aggression in the region.
This figure only includes Turkish soldiers, and not their Free Syrian Army auxiliaries, nor any Kurds that got killed in the fighting.
Dogan News Agency reported that intense fighting broke out between Turkish special forces units deployed in Afrin and the People's Protection Unit (YPG) militants who used tunnels to mount an ambush.
A Turkish helicopter sent to rescue the wounded had to turn back after being hit, while the area was shelled to allow an evacuation.
Meanwhile, the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) announced that at least 2,434 terrorists had been "neutralized" in the operation since it was launched.
The sources added that the suspects had also insulted President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Turkey invaded Afrin on January 2018, in an offensive codenamed "olive Branch" on Syria's Afrin Kurds-majority, on the pretext of protecting its boarders from the People's Protection Units (YPG) which Ankara views as "terrorists".
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, 141 civilians, including 27 children, have died since the beginning of the Turkish military campaign, a claim which Ankara denies.
On Feb. 28, Operation Olive Branch forces established a crescent-shape corridor stretching along northwestern Idlib province and Aleppo province's Azaz district, cutting the YPG terrorists' connection to the Turkish border.
The Turkish government has said the recent United Nations Security Council resolution on a month-long ceasefire in Syria will have no effect on its cross-border operations.
USA support for the YPG militia in north Syria has pushed relations between Turkey and the United States to crisis point.
It is one of the bloodiest days for Turkish troops since they began a major offensive against Kurdish fighters in Afrin in January.
