Turkey has requested NATO to deploy Patriot missile defences on its territory.
The country requested for protection after receiving intelligence that the Syrian Government was contemplating the use of missiles, possibly chemical warheads.
The officials said they had credible evidence that if the Syrian Government’s aerial bombardment against opposition-held areas failed to hold the rebels back, President Bashar al-Assad’s regime might resort to missiles and chemical weapons in as the last effort to survive.
According to the Guardian, the Turks believe that the regime’s Soviet-era Scuds and North Korean SS-21 missiles would be aimed principally at opposition areas.
