Humiliation, threats and brutal beatings – that’s how some of those on board a Syria-bound plane describe the welcome they received in Turkey. F-16 fighter jets were scrambled to ground the Moscow – Damascus flight. It was carrying over thirty passengers, including small children.
Don Debar, an anti-war activist and journalist says the incident with Syrian plane in Turkey is a wake-up call signaling that NATO members are ready for open military confrontation.
