“We have good reasons to believe that Turkey is actively preparing for a military invasion of a sovereign state – the Syrian Arab Republic. We’re detecting more and more signs of Turkish armed forces being engaged in covert preparations for direct military actions in Syria,” Konashenkov told media.

The current activity at the Turkish-Syrian border suggest that Turkey prepares to invade Syria, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said Thursday.

He also said that earlier the Russian Defense Ministry provided the international community with irrefutable video evidence of Turkish self-propelled artillery units shelling Syrian settlements in the northern part of Latakia province.

“We’re perplexed by the fact that the usually talkative representatives of the Pentagon, NATO and of the groups allegedly protecting the rights of Syrian people remain silent despite our calls to react to these actions,” Konashenkov remarked.

He also pointed out that the Russian Defense Ministry has intensified all types of surveillance activity in the Middle East.

“So if someone in Ankara thinks that canceling a Russian observation flight would help conceal something, that is just the mark of an amateur,” Konashenkov said.

Turkey’s refusal to allow a Russian inspection flight over its territory is an attempt to conceal Ankara’s illegal military activity on the border with Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said Thursday.

Ankara has not allowed Russian inspectors to conduct a scheduled inspection flight over the Turkish territory under the Open Skies Treaty on February 1-5.

“Such steps, taken by a NATO member-country, undermine confidence- and security-building measures in Europe,” ministry’s spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.

“We are considering Turkey’s move as a dangerous precedent and an attempt to hide its illegal military activity on the border with Syria,” Konashenkov stressed.

    Jean – In addition to all the chatter about Turkey and the flagrant things they’re doing on and across the Syrian border, Turkey is also involved in a shooting war with the Kurd in the southeast part of the nation. Independent observers say it looks like a true war zone with shot up city streets and littered areas with burnt out mechanical equipment and tanks. There is also a sizable contingent of Kurds in the upper northeast part of Turkey that may also become a problem when the Iraqi Kurds get their large oil money settlement any time soon. They are flirting with disaster from the Kurds and the Syrian/Russian team!

      You don’t suppose that the WEST/NATO is sitting by just watching Erdogan implode with the hope that WWIII comes out of this? Hugs, ~Jean
