LAST UPDATE

Turkish military forces have briefly crossed the border with a Kurdish region in Syria with the backing of armored vehicles and helicopters.

More than 100 Turkish troops armed with thermal rockets and sophisticated weaponry on Tuesday entered the town of Cerablos in the Kurdish region of Kobani.

The contingent of Turkish soldiers reportedly left for their bases after an hour.

Meanwhile, Turkish media are reporting that about 40 Turkish troops have been detained inside Syria.

A spokesman for the Kurdish militias in the border towns of Kobani and Efrin accused the Turkish forces of supplying arms and ammunition to insurgents fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government.

The Turkish foreign ministry has denied reports of cross-border incursion into Syria.

Last week, the Turkish Army staged tank exercises in the Nusaybin district of Mardin province, just two kilometers away from the Syrian border.

The NBC News also reported on July 31 that nearly two dozen MANPADs (man-portable air-defense systems) have been delivered to the insurgents in Syria by Turkey.

Ankara’s intervention in Syria’s internal affairs has drawn criticism from Turkey’s opposition parties.

The leader of the Republican People’s Party warned the government last month against dragging the country in the “Middle Eastern quagmire” by its aggressive stance against Syria.

That will be uncountable.

I think it may start world war III if turkey gets involved in a armed conflct outside its own borders.

The question will be who will support who?

Turkey cannot relie on NATO or UN if they start the war.

Ps is there a chance that a kurdish defense against turkish army will be the source to attack damascus?

Turkey is a Muslim nation so it shouldn't expect the support of forces that only know how to attack other muslim nations. The Turks need to wakw up and realize that they are not equals with other powers.

God will cut them down to size one of these days...

There is no way Turkey will enter Syria at this stage, the Syrian government is still strong enough to give them a bloody nose, plus the Turkish population is against such involvement in Syria and on the domestic front this will increase the power of the military that the AKP was working so hard to diminish.
