Assad said that he apologized for the mortar earlier and that he does not want war with Turkey. The Syrian military is acting under orders from Assad, so they would not be provoking a war with Turkey. The Syrian rebels, however, who want to overthrow Assad, would have reason to provoke Turkey in order to have the country invaded and have Assad thrown out. Yet Turkey is acting as though it is Assad himself who is provoking them and not a few rebels on the border. I just don't get it....am I even close to being right? Can anybody clear this up?

Syria’s permanent representative to the United Nations Security Council Bashar Al-Jafari told the El-Nashra website on Thursday that the Syrian government had not send any apology letter to the Turkish government.[/i][/b] [link to www.thehindu.com] [/quote]
Turkey is prepared to answer with more force against Syria if mortars from the Arab republic continue to hit Turkish territory, Chief of General Staff Gen. Necdet Özel told reporters today.
Speaking from the border town of Akçakale, Özel said "Turkey already responded, and will respond even stronger" if attacks continued.
"We are here, and we are standing tall," Özel said.
Özel then visited the houses of five civilians who were killed by Syrian shelling in the town on Oct. 3
