Reports of Troop Movements Toward Syria's Borders
Added reasons for concern.
by Stephen Lendman
After Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced new rules of engagement, Turkey deployed missile batteries, rocket launchers, and anti-aircraft weapons close to Syria's border.
About 30 military trucks arrived in Iskenderun. From there, they moved toward Syria's border 30 miles away.
Armored military vehicles also headed for Sanliurfa and Reyhanli in Southern Turkey's Hatay Province.
On June 29, Reuters headlined "Syrian tanks amass near Turkish border, FSA (Free Syrian Army) general says."
According to General Mustafa al-Sheikh, Syria deployed around 170 tanks north of Aleppo within 19 miles of Turkey's border. No independent confirmation was provided.
