HAVANA TIMES — The Assad regime continues to face new tensions with neighboring Turkey following Syria’s downing of a Turkish fighter jet in Syrian airspace.

Earlier today, Turkey began deploying military convoys carrying anti-aircraft weapons to its border with Syria. In a speech, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he will not refrain from retaliating against Syria if provoked.

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan: “We will not refrain from teaching a lesson to the state of gangs that has lost its legitimacy in the eye of the people, imposing state terror to its people and trying to test Turkey’s greatness.”
