German Patriot air defense missiles on Turkish border with Syria

The defence ministers of NATO member states decided on February 2, 2012 in Brussels that the command centre of the missile defence system would be located at the Headquarters Allied Air Command Ramstein, Germany. The German defence minister, Thomas de Maizière, also announced that the German Patriot systems would become part of the NATO missile 'defence' system...

Germany's cabinet authorized on December 6, 2012, the stationing of German Patriot air defense missiles on the Turkish border with Syria as part of a NATO mission to help 'protect' Turkey from possible cross-border attacks. The mission will involve up to 400 troops from the German military, the Bundeswehr, and also includes personnel for AWACS surveillance aircraft and commando units.

Germany on Monday expelled four employees of the Syrian embassy in Berlin, the foreign minister said, as part of moves to further isolate the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
