It was merely an incident that was bound to occur, given the refusal on the part of President Bashar al-Assad to accept reality and seek some form of partnership with those seeking change in Syria. Some Syrian shells hit targets in Turkey which resulted in the death and destruction. The government of Turkey has been attempting for over a year to end the violence in its neighboring state and restore peace to the region.
As a member of NATO, Turkey has the right to call on fellow members when attacked. The government made clear, “there has been an attack on our land and our citizens lost their lives, which surely has adequate response in international law.” Most probably, Turkish soldiers will make an attack, destroy some military targets and return home.
However, Death will not take a holiday and more violence will occur.
