US concerned over Turkey's remarks on 'Israeli Syria attack'

US State Department's spokesperson Victoria Nuland commented on Turkish senior officials' statements regarding the alleged Israeli strike in Syria and expressed the US's concern regarding their inciting content.


Nuland said the US filed a complaint with Turkey and pointed out the primary need to focus on Syrian President Bashar Assad's violence against his own people. Turkey's PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday that "History will not forgive the State of Israel." On Saturday the Turkish FM said that Assad must retaliate to the Israeli strike.
