BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The Turkish military has increased its presence in the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate this week after a number of hostile exchanges with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) at the end of June.

According to opposition accounts, a large Turkish military convoy entered the Bab Al-Hawa crossing and made their way to the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate, where they took up positions at their observation post in the town of Sheir Magher.

Over the last ten days, the Syrian Arab Army has struck the Turkish military’s observation post at Sheir Magher on at least three occasions, killing one Turkish soldier and wounding three others.

Turkey has responded to these attacks by shelling the Syrian Army’s checkpoints near Sheir Magher and summoning the Russian military attache.

The Turkish authorities have demanded the Russian military control the Syrian Army and prevent them from shelling their observation post.

During the last exchange, the Russian military quickly intervened and prevented further escalation.

Turki economy should collapse and it will lead to an uprising within Turki against ErDog and his party. An internal turmoil should definitely happen. The local police will be unable to handle the riots, looting, killing, sectarian violence and law & order will collapse. Situation will warrant to call in support from the Army to handle the internal situation. This means all that beefing up of Turki Military along the Syrian borders will be stopped and recalled to handle their own house which is on fire.
