Your hero and Employer Assad is attacking other countries clown!! NOT ZIONISTS OR THE WEST AZZWIPE!! From AP News!!! Turkish artillery fired on Syrian targets Wednesday after shelling from Syria struck a border village in Turkey, killing five civilians, sharply escalating tensions between the two neighbors and prompting NATO to convene an emergency meeting.

"Our armed forces at the border region responded to this atrocious attack with artillery fire on points in Syria that were detected with radar, in line with the rules of engagement," the Turkish government said in a statement from the prime minister's office.

The artillery fire capped a day that began with four bombs tearing through a government-held district in Syria's commercial and cultural capital of Aleppo, killing more than 30 people and reducing buildings to rubble.

Along the volatile border, a shell fired from inside Syria landed on a home in the Turkish village of Akcakale, killing a woman, her three daughters and another woman, and wounding at least 10 others, according to Turkish media.

The shelling came from forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime, which is fighting rebels backed by Turkey in an escalating civil war.

Don't think that Allah the supreme isn't hearing the cries and pain of the syrian people. Bashar al asad will join other tyrants in the pits of hell. Allah soon will bring victory to the Syrian freedom fighters. For the unbelievers plotted , Allah also plotted and Allah is the best of plotters. Don't worry sons of Syria the Muslim world is on your side and will do all it can to assist you. "the messenger and those of faith cried " when will come the help of Allah , ah the help of Allah is always near".Quran surah 2 verse 214

This whole mortar thing sounds pretty fishy.

First of all, no one knows right now if it was government troops or rebels, including Assad I'll bet. Second of all, chances are higher than nil that it was rebels trying to bring Turkey into the fight. That's one of the mainstays of successful guerilla aka asymmetrical warfare. And third of all, there are elements in the Turkish military that are looking for a pretext to occupy Kurdish northern Syria, so you can't even rule out direct Turkish involvement.

Allah doesn´t hear, because he does not exist.And if these criminal insurgents are from Allah, it means that they don´t serve to God, they serve to devil, satan the same and price for serving satan is eternal hell.

Really? The fact that terrorists are trained on Turkish territory from the start, and that they are infiltrated with the arms, into Syria, does not matter? And the fact that Turkish Jet violated Syrian territory also does not matter? Funny logic!

At the United Nations, Russia blocked the adoption of a draft statement condemning the Syrian shelling of Akcakale and proposed a text that would call for "restraint" on the border without referring to breaches of international law.

Western diplomats complained that Russia's proposals, if accepted, would weaken the statement to an unacceptable degree.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was "alarmed by escalating tensions" between Syria and Turkey and warned that the risk of the 18-month-old Syrian conflict embroiling the entire region was growing, his spokesman said.

China's Foreign Ministry urged Turkey and Syria to exercise restraint.

The peaceful pro-democracy movement which surfaced in March 2011 in Syria turned into a full-scale armed revolt after President Bashar al-Assad tried to crush it and is now becoming a sectarian conflict that could destabilize neighboring states.

Turkey hit back after what it called "the last straw" when the mortar hit Akcakale, killing a mother, her three children and a female relative.

Atalay said Turkey had exercised its right to retaliation and that parliament's authorization for a foreign military deployment was not a "war memorandum".

"It's a deterrent measure taken in line with Turkey's interests, for use when it needs to protect itself," he told reporters.

Three armored personnel carriers were positioned on the southern edge of Akcakale, their guns trained on the Syrian town of Tel Abyad a few miles (kilometers) across the frontier. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said three Syrian soldiers were killed by Turkish shelling of a military post nearby. Continued...

This is from the comments at the UN from Turkey, Syria, Russia and China.
