Turkey threatens Syria with retaliation

Turkey, responding to the downing of one of its jets by Syrian forces, says its military will respond to any future violation of its border by Syrian military elements.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday that Turkish Armed Forces “will respond to all violations on the Syrian border.”

Syria insists that the Turkish plane violated its air space. But Turkey disagrees, saying that though the plane had unintentionally strayed into Syria’s air space, it was inside international airspace when it was brought down on Friday.

Meanwhile, the NATO said it condemned the Syrian forces’ action ‘in the strongest terms’ and termed it ‘unacceptable’.

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen expressed solidarity with Turkey on Tuesday but made no mention of retaliatory action.

Fogh Rasmussen said NATO was following the situation closely. “I certainly expect that such an incident will not happen again,” he said.
