Turkey’s Yurt newspaper reports that the mortar used to attack the
Turkish town of Akcakale is of NATO design. According to the newspaper’s
Editor-in-Chief, Merdan Yanardag, the mortars were sent to the
CIA-backed Free Syria Army. Yanardag cites reliable sources, Russia Today reports.
“Turkey is a longtime member of the North Atlantic Treaty
Organization and they’re going to act in conjunction with other NATO
powers, so it’s unsurprising that this has happened,” editor of the
Pan-African news wire, Abayomi Azikiwe, told RT.
The establishment media in the United States has not carried the story and continues to blame Syria for the incident.
The New York Times,
however, reported last week that it was not certain who was responsible
for the shell landing inside on Turkey’s side of the border.
“It was unknown whether the mortar shells were fired by Syrian
government forces or rebels fighting to topple the government of
President Bashar al-Assad. The Turkish response seemed to assume that
the Syrian government was responsible,” the newspaper reported on
