    emphasizes in its headline that Syria experienced an "attack." Uh, given Syria initiated the violence, I would think it's more accurate to suggest that Syria experienced retaliation.

      but Turkey not reckless enough to attack blindly I bet, altho political pressures to respond building no doubt....maybe leading to conclusion jumping.

      Radar tracking can tell where shells came from, shoot and run would be the mo of the mortar team, they know their shells can be tracked, a rebel unit trying to stage a false Syrian regime attack would get as close to a regime position as possible.

        Turkish forces shelled an area inside Syria from where a single mortar shell was fired, and which struck inside Turkey.

        Don't get me wrong—i recced the diary. But there's an important distinction that is being missed here.

          yes agreed, headline a stretch but technically accurate.

          And I think it was more than a single shell this time and the time before that....but I wasn't there..

          and official military is attacking Syria...what is your point, it wasn't THAT big an attack, ok...unless you were the one shelled. Thankfully we weren't.

          That it wasn't an attack but a response or self defense?...ok, that hair is split.
