Turkey sends more military supplies to strengthen Syria border presence

News | 18.09.2012 | 06:23
 

 

Turkey has sent more military supplies to the southeastern province of Mardin, near the Syrian border, as Ankara continues to strengthen its military presence in the area.
 
According to Turkish sources, a convoy of 40 trucks carrying military supplies and armored vehicles left the Turkish city of Diyarbakir for a buffer zone on the Turkish soil near the Syrian border on Monday. 
 
The source claimed that the deployment aims at preventing the Syrian unrest spilling over the border into Turkey. 
 
It is the first time that Turkish sources speak about the creation of a buffer zone along Syria-Turkey border.
 
Since the beginning of unrest in Syria, Turkey has conducted several war games near its border with Syria and has reinforced its border troops with tanks, missile launchers and armored combat vehicles. 
 
Ankara has also deployed new air defense systems along its border with Syria. 
 
Turkey has as well set up a military-security base at Sazgin Airport in Qazi Antep province, which is 180 kilometers away from the Syrian city of Aleppo. Military transportation planes, air defense systems and radar equipment have been deployed to the base. 
 
Sazgin Airport was used for the transfer of troops and ammunition during the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. 
 
Turkey, along with Saudi Arabia and Qatar, has set up a secret base in the southern Turkish city of Adana, about one hundred kilometers from Syria’s border, to send military supplies to anti-Damascus groups.

European Killers Enjoy Fascist «Safari» in Ukraine

The self-defense forces of the Donetsk People’s Republic reported the elimination of two enemy’s block posts in the area of Donetsk in the first half of July. According to their Minister of Defense Igor Strelkov, one of them was defended by people in NATO combat fatigue who were foreign passport holders.  It’s not only the hired personnel of Western private military contractors who do their job by killing for money. There are also people who go to Ukraine to get pleasure and are ready to pay for it. Stan Patton, soldier of fortune, Blackwater, shares a quotation in his Twitter saying what the prices are: a shot of howitzers - $ 100 from the tank - $ 200, a shot in the village is priced at U.S. $ 350...
