This is serious but important that the facts are established before any response in these volatile situations. Syria is becoming a dangerous place not just in Syria but the potential escalation of the conflict could set the region on fire.

Seems serious, I can only predict increased Turkish military activity in the region. Diplomacy is failing, the last resort is military force. How, when, or how serious the response will be I can only speculate. Whatever Erdogan agrees on, I hope it's the best decision for Turkey.
