It looks as though the departure of Patriot missiles from Turkey will be at least as controversial as their arrival in 2013. The United States and Germany have decided to withdraw their Patriot anti-ballistic missile systems, which were deployed in Turkey to defend against possible air and missile threats from Syria. Germany’s intention to remove its system from Turkey’s Kahramanmaras province has been known for a while. But the US decision came as a blow to Ankara.
