Patriot MIssile

Syrian mortars reportedly aimed at rebels close to the border have strayed into Turkey.

Nato Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen has underlined US President Barack Obama’s warning to the Syrian government not to use chemical weapons against its own people.

At a Nato foreign ministers’ meeting in Brussels, Mr Rasmussen said their use would be “completely unacceptable”.

Turkey feels threatened by the growing crisis in Syria. Stray Syrian artillery shells have already come across the border on several occasions.

President Obama has warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad he would face “consequences” if he uses chemical weapons against his people.
