German cabinet agrees to send Patriot missiles to Turkey

Published: 12.06.12, 09:39 / Israel News

Germany's cabinet agreed on Thursday to send Patriot missiles and soldiers to Turkey to defend it against a possible Syrian missile attack after NATO agreed to the request from Ankara on Tuesday, a cabinet source told Reuters.


NATO member Turkey has repeatedly scrambled jets along the countries' frontier and has responded in kind when shells from the Syrian conflict came down inside its borders, fuelling fears the civil war could spread. The Netherlands and the United States also plan to provide Patriot missile batteries. Deployment is expected to take several weeks. (Reuters)
