TURKEY TRAVEL WARNING. Warnings are coming in regarding the southeast part of Turkey, more precisely the Turkey-Syria border region. On several occasions the last weeks, shots have been fired into Turkey territory from inside Syria, and the Turks have stepped upp security in the region.

Turkey and Syria traded artillery fire for the fourth day in a row Saturday as rebels clashed with Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces near the border, heightening fears that the crisis could erupt into a regional conflict, the Associated Press reported.

The Swedish State Department is among those that have issued travel warnings on Turkey, and the shootings have developed into a diplomatic crisis between the countries.
