Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip said his country has no intention of going to war with Syria, hours after the parliament in Ankara authorised possible cross-border attacks..

But he noted that Turkey had the might to protect its nationals and borders, if needed.

His comments came as the Turkish military amassed tanks and anti aircraft missiles in Akcakale town in Sanliurfa city, where the deadly incident took place on Wednesday.

It was not the first time Damascus shelling hit Turkish territory and branded it "an accident," according to Erdogan, who claimed that Turkey was previously hit seven times by Syrian shelling.
