Syria Blamed for Turkish Provocation
Turkey committed an act of aggression.
by Stephen Lendman
On June 22, two Turkish warplanes provocatively entered Syrian airspace low and fast. Doing so showed hostile intent.
The Obama administration's dirty hands are all over this incident. Washington and Ankara wanted a reaction and got it. Expect what's ahead to unfold as planned.
Turkish officials claim Syria downed its aircraft in international waters. They lied.
A previous article said the Istanbul-based Hurriyet daily reported that "wreckage of a Turkish jet shot down by Syria (was found) in Syrian waters....Turkish news channels reported (it) on Sunday, without citing a source."
Doing so refutes claims that Syria acted in international waters.
