Developments on the Turkish-Syrian borderThe Russian Defense Ministry has said that movements from Turkey’s side of the border leads to suspicions that they are preparing a ground invasion of Syria.

“We have serious grounds to suspect intensive preparations by Turkey for a military invasion on the territory of the sovereign state of Syria,” Major General Igor Konashenkov, Defense Ministry spokesman, told journalists.

“We are recording more and more signs of concealed preparations by the Turkish military,” he added.

The spokesmen then went on to reiterate that is has video proof of Turkish artillery shelling populated areas of Syria in Latakia province.

“We are surprised that the talkative representatives of the Pentagon, NATO and numerous organizations allegedly protecting human rights in Syria, despite our call to respond to these actions, still remain silent [on the shelling by Turkey],” he said.

That was and is a great danger maybe to all of us. Erdogan and his regime are not trustworthy and may act irrational (again).
