fter NATO lent its support by condeming Syria "in the strongest terms" for shooting down a Turkish fighter jet last week, Turkey issued a "blunt warning" to Syria not to approach its border. "Every military element that approaches the Turkish border from Syria in a manner that constitutes a security risk or danger would be considered as a threat and would be treated as a military target," Turkish Prime Minister Recip Tayyip Erdogan said in a speech to Arab diplomats and lawmakers Tuesday. While Turkey has conceded that the plane briefly strayed into Syrian airspace, Ankara says the jet was over international waters when it was attacked.
