ANKARA - Twenty-six military officers, including two generals, defected from the Syrian army to Turkey overnight, Turkish state media reported on Friday.

The officers, including 11 colonels, two lieutenant-colonels, two majors, four captains and five lieutenants, crossed into Turkey's province of Hatay with their families and other foot soldiers, making a total of 71 people, state-run Anatolian news agency said.

It was the biggest desertion of senior soldiers from Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces in months.
