Turkey's Attacks on Syria Continue

As Turkey continues to shell Syrian border towns, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said on Tuesday that the coalition has plans to defend Turkey if Syria escalates the conflict, Reuters reports.

He emphasized, however, that the two countries should find a resolution. NATO condemned the attack last week after Syrian mortar fire hit a Turkish border town.

“Obviously Turkey has a right to defend herself within international law,” Rasmussen said in Brussels on Tuesday. “I would add to that that obviously Turkey can rely on NATO solidarity.”
