Two NATO’s surface-to-air missile complexes Patriot have been put on combat duty not far from the Syrian border, Reuters reported Tuesday citing German sources.

These two complexes which were delivered from Germany have been deployed near the Turkish city of Kahramanmarash.

In total NATO has sent six Patriot complexes to Turkey – two from the US, two from Germany and two from the Netherlands.

The missile complexes supplied from the Netherlands were out into combat duty on January 26.

The two complexes from the US will be delivered on Wednesday.

In November 2012, Ankara asked NATO to provide anti-aircraft complexes to protect its air space from possible air attacks from the side of Syria.
