In a live interview on Press TV, Voice of Russia regular contributor and the owner of the Stop NATO website Rick Rozoff, citing multiple sources, stated that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have been placed on high alert.
Mr. Rozoff verified the information to the Voice of Russia and added that Turkey may open its Żncirlik Air Base, one of the most strategically important NATO bases in the world, to the United States if they decide to launch military aggression against Syria.
The base was effectively used for Iraq operations in the past, and also those against Kosovo.
Mr. Rozoff also stated that other countries in the region are also on high alert.
