WW4 File: Turkish army’s shelling on Friday hits Syrian military position south of rebel-held border post at Tal al-Abyad; Syria’s official denial of responsibility for mortar attacks on Turkey again raises spectre of third-party provocation

Today’s Turkish artillery bombardment on Syria struck a military position south of the rebel-held border post at Tal al-Abyad, in the northern province of Raqa. Raqa is home to thousands of displaced Syrians fleeing violence from other areas of the country.

In view of the Syrian regime’s official denial of responsibility for several mortars lobbed at Turkey from its territory this week, we can only conclude that some party or parties is trying to provoke a war between Syria and Turkey, which would probably lead to NATO intervention in Syria’s internal conflict. There are several possible perpetrators:

  1. The Syrian Arab Army accidentally fired the mortars and has no intention of starting a conflict with Turkey, as it is preoccupied with crushing an internal uprising.
  2. The Free Syrian Army (FSA), which until recently was based in Turkey and is trying to overthrow the Assad regime in Damascus, fired the mortars to provoke Western intervention against Syria.
  3. The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) has been incited by the Assad regime to attack Turkey out of revenge for Turkey’s hosting the FSA. The PKK, however, is fighting for an independent Marxist Kurdistan that will span parts of Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran, so it can only establish fairweather alliances with governments like Syria’s.
  4. Russian military advisors, who are known to be operating in Syria, intend to drag NATO, including the USA, and possibly Israel into a major conflagration with Syria and Iran, since the two are locked into a mutual defense pact.

    One must wonder if the Muslim Brotherhood coddling up to “former” Syrian regime members in the Free Syrian Army are hoping to justify Russia’s aggression in the Middle East by laying claim that the USA and the West are sponsoring the Syrian “rebels” even though if they succeed in overthrowing Assad, no change in foreign policy of Syria in regards to Israel will take place.

    There are also a number of anti-Israel Leftists who embrace the Syrian “rebels” like Max Blumenthal and other anti-Israel “journalists” who are siding with the “rebels” while the pro-Assad Leftists embrace the Assad regime would love to accuse how the Syrian “rebels” are “pro-Western” and “pro-Israel” even though someone as anti-Israel like Blumenthal endorses them unprecedentedly, even with the midst of the same “rebels” purposely trying to get Turkey to use military action.

    These anti-Israel Leftists don’t hate military intervention, only when Israel or the USA actually uses it to defend itself.
