Turkey to make imminent official request to NATO to station patriot missiles along Turkey-Syrian border according to a Turkish foreign ministry official

- The situation in Syria has already spilt over in neighbouring countries such as Turkey and Lebanon. The amount of Syrian refugees in Turkey has also been a source of tension with reports in the very recent past of shelling across that border. This latest step by Turkey looks to be pre-emptive against further escalation.
