NATO: Turkey Patriot Missiles Operational By February

The Patriot missile system being deployed to help protect Turkey from any spillover of the conflict in neighboring Syria should be operational by early February, perhaps sooner, NATO said Monday.

A NATO spokesperson said the transport of troops and material got underway in early January and would continue over the next few weeks.
