Patriot Missiles Defend Turkish Border From Syria

Nato has begun to deploy Patriot missiles to Turkey to help Turkish troops repel attacks by missiles or aircraft from neighbouring Syria.

The US European Command said its troops and equipment had started arriving in southern Turkey, and more would arrive in the coming days.

Germany and the Netherlands are preparing to ship their Patriot batteries early next week.

The six battery units are scheduled to be operational by the end of January.
