Turkey Deploys Air Defense System To ‘Defend’ Syria, Iran Against Israel Raids

ANKARA (Combined Sources)–High-ranking sources in the Israeli Foreign Ministry expressed displeasure with Turkey Thursday over the deployment of anti-aircraft batteries along the Syrian border in the Iskenderun district.

The Turkish daily Hurriyet meanwhile, quoted a military source as saying that “this move aims at repelling a US or Israeli attack against Iran or Syria.”

The Israeli Foreign Ministry sources noted that if the news published in the Turkish media were true, then Ankara would be taking a side with Damascus and Tehran, instead of preventing the nuclearization of Iran.

In a phone call with Al-Manar TV on Wednesday, Mustafa Ozcan, a Turkish political analyst, said “The news in Hurriyet daily is true. The air defense system was moved from Istanbul to Iskenderun to counter any surprise Israeli air raid, because in 2007 Israeli warplanes used the Turkish airspace to carry out air raids on Syrian targets. Thus Turkey took this precautionary measure so that what happened in 2007 would not happen again.”

Asked whether the cooperation between Israel and Turkey gives the Zionist entity the freedom to use Turkey’s air space, Ozcan replied, “Of course not. Israel cannot do this without prior notice to Ankara because Syria is Turkey’s neighbor and ties between the two countries are developing day after day.”

    If I were Syria or Iran,I would be very careful in trusting the turks.In WW1 the turkies were on the Axis side viz Germany/Austria.They were beaten by a equal force of Allies.so they grovelled,and joined the Allies.In street parlance the call this TURNED YELLOW.With friends like this,who needs enemies.

      When turkey defeated in ww1 they fought allies with the little force they had to establish the modern turkish republic. They never join allies in ww1 and if you talking about ww2 Turkey remained natural until war was nearly over and joind allies by request from allies for safe passage from bosphorus. With friends like Turks you can fight against the whole world even if you were defeated in the end not with italy who joined allies when war broke out against the pacts that have been made.

    Hye, Syria and Iran, with a history as the Turks have with all their ‘alliances’ it would appear that they have
    not any that have continued… or lasted.
    Turkey agrees/disagrees – all their ‘alliances’ seem to end
    Better to know your ‘ally’ better – especially a Turkey.

    I totally agree with Alex Postallian. The Iranians should be very careful, because Turkey could strike them any minute. They look for their own gain in every situation.
    Well said Alex “With friends like these, who needs enemies”.
    Turkey is playing with wild fire.

  4. Voice of reason said:

    I think the fact is that, even if what is being said is true about the Turks, they are neighbors and one needs to treat one’s neighbor with dignity and Iran is far too big and clever to fall in the trap of misunderstanding with Turkey. Sinicism pays most of the time but not all. There is saying in Iran that, one should never lay in a way that water gets under them! Another saying is that, keep your belongings well protected and so you won’t have treat your neighbors as thieves.

    So, Obama plans on asking congress to give (what is it??) 260 million dollars to aid in a war monger state named Israel… geez all that money could go to our Amrericans, for the homeless, unemployed, helping to save peoples homes w/foreclosure, our vets esp. the survivors whom were on the USS LIberty when Israel intentionally murdered then lied about saying “oi, we didn’t know”…. OUr gov’t is not for her own people anymore….. they (the Judeo-nazi terrorists) can choke on my hard earned tax money and as far as Turkey goes helping Iran and Sryia.. good for them.. I hope they work together because i’m disgusted that my money has to go to the bottom feeders…. Again, i hope you choke on my money Judeo-Nazi’s. GET THE ISRAEL LOBBY OUT OF OUR GOV’T / OUT OF OUR COUNTRY…. WE NEED TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK…..

    How much do want to bet,a vast majority of Americans don’t have a clue? Better yet how is this going sit in Isreal? Every time I try to tell some silly American of the folly of thier crusade I’m looked at like one of the enemy. America has never endured war at home,save for the Civil War. I honnestly believe that Americans in general don’t know and don’t want to know what deals and betrayls thier government is capable of. If America is “The last great hope for mankind” accorrding to Sean,then you’d think this Christian country would be there for the worlds 1st Christian nation. Maybe an Islamic attempt at genocide against Christians just dosn’t matter. I guess for America its all about the Holocaust and pay no attention to what thier so called “trusted allie in the war on terror” is really doing.What happens when Isreal feels threatned enough to strike? Whats America going to do,watch and wait?

    Iran and Syria should be very wary of Turkish promises, as they are masters of double crossing people.

  13. john said:

    just another turkish scam. they’re so famous for. it’s just another kabuki theater performed for the Arab audience. while continuing it’s cooperation with israel. the Arabs will will be on to this soon if they’re on already.

  14. john said:

    turks have this image of arabs are morons.they think they’re much smarter than arabs. thinking they can fool them with double dealings with israel . they’re very much mistaken. as they were with the Armenian proptacals

  15. Rich said:

    Maybe they are hedging their bets. Maybe they are negotiating their “friendship” with Israel in the same way Israel talks with everyone else.

    Will turkey ever live down the shame of the YELLOW STAIN,of WW1,and YELLOW STAIN of the ARMENIAN GENOCIDE.NOOO!!

    • Doorman said:

      alex Turkey has opened its libraries and archives to all people who wish to research about the incidents of 1911 what about armenia? Why they refuse to share their documents? and the relocation of armenians is exactly the same thing as USA relocate japanese people from west coast of america to middle territories in WW2. Why armenians never talk about the ones who fought by russias side and make the relocation a nessecity?

    The main stream American understands exactly whats going on with the world and knows it cannot stop the globalist agenda from attacking Iran…..The ones in the know are now refusing to let our children be part of the US Military so that our children do not become sacrifices for this bloody agenda…Iran should recognize this and not be blinded by religion or they will become a sacrifice

    Alex the most the Turks can do is keep digging in the hole they’er in. They can’t live it down or out run history.But time is on their side,at least for now. Maybe the west will realize this when one of those missles finds its mark on an American plane.In the mean time the bigger threat may come from Turkeys nuclear ambitions not Irans.

    Kind of makes me chuckle Turkey can’t be trusted, as a colmumist stated a few years back the only thing worse than being an enemy of the U.S. is being a friend of the U.S. as Saddam and a few others have found to their dismay.Lol guess trust is a two edge sword you just never know which edge is going to lop off your head that is if you have some natural resources(such as oil) some one else wants that is…

    iran can defend iutself and attack on their very own (just like n korea) if you play politics you should only depend of your own capabilities évery wise nation should do that THE ONLY ONE YOU CAN TRUST IS YOU….YOURSELF !!! If a nation didn’t know that, now they know they will be grateful to mr lou sweet i’ve always helped my fellow-terrestrians !

    Turkey can do what it wants cause this Country is the only real big player in the region. Who cares about some arabs walking over land that was ours. The arabs sholuld allie with Britain. Without the brits there would be not one squaremeter of “arabic” land. Like some said before: Everyone should trust in his own capabilities. We have much of them. Very much.
