Turkey to act against Syrian missiles

Government says it is receiving go-ahead from NATO to use missile defence system.

    After several incursions into its airspace by Syrian air force jets, the Turkish government says it is now getting the go-ahead from NATO for use of the Patriot Missile Defence System.

    The surface-to-air missiles will be used to defend Turkish territory against fire from neighbouring Syria.
