Soldiers to manage Patriot missile system protecting southern Turkey from possible Syrian attacks.

    The Netherlands and Germany are deploying troops to Turkey, where they will be in charge of a Patriot missile system that Ankara requested to help secure the country's borders from a spillover of the conflict in neighbouring Syria.

    The first of about 400 German and 300 Dutch troops have already left for Turkey. US soldiers will also be involved.
