Turkey sends missiles to Syrian border.

By bne IntelliNews July 23, 2012
The Turkish military sent ground-to-air missiles and military vehicles to the Syrian border over the weekend after Syrian rebels seized a third border post at the common border. Militants of the Free Syrian Army last week also captured two border crossings with Turkey. In June, Ankara deployed tanks and missiles at the Syrian border after Syria downed a Turkish jet for allegedly violating its airspace. Meanwhile Syrian refugees clashed with Turkish police on Sunday. The clashes erupted in two of 10 refugee camps which are located along the Turkish-Syrian border. Turkey hosts thousands of Syrians who fled the violence in Syria. The reason for the clashes between refugees and Turkish police was the lack of food at camps, according to media reports.
