NATO Sets Locations for Patriot Missile Batteries in Turkey

NATO allies picked the sites for stationing Patriot missiles to defend Turkey from the spillover of the civil war in Syria.

The U.S., Netherlands and Germany will each deploy two Patriot batteries in the next few weeks, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization said in a statement in Brussels today.

The mission’s purpose is “to deter any threats to Turkey, to defend Turkey’s population and territory and to de-escalate the crisis on NATO’s southeastern border,” according to the statement.

NATO agreed on Dec. 4 to deploy the defensive missiles along the 900-kilometer (560-mile) frontier after forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad attacked rebel targets near the border.

U.S. missiles will be based at Gaziantep, Dutch missiles at Adana and German missiles at Kahramanmaras, NATO said.
