The TSK [Turkish Armed Forces] has prepared its action plan in the event of war, the “worst case scenario.” According to this plan, which aims to use land, sea and air forces combined, 2nd Army will play an active role.

Amid the tensions with Syria it has been learnt that the TSK command echelons have prepared an action plan for war, the “worst case scenario.”

According to this plan, which factors in Syria’s means and capabilities, Russia’s presence in the region and the PKK, 2nd Army is going to play an active role. The plan includes risk analyses and aims to use land, air and naval forces together in any operation. The limits of the plan, which also envisages the use of Special Forces, will be determined by a government directive in the event of war. This directive will determine the desired political and military goals in the event of war as well as how far to advance and which regions will be kept under control.

The TSK is conducting many operations in the fight against terrorism and has all kinds of threat planning regarding its local neighbours. The TSK has plans concerning every kind of threat including Syria, Iran and Greece. It has been learnt that threat planning for Syria intensified after the increase in tensions and that risk analyses were revised given the shifting balances of power in parallel with the chaos within the country. The plan has reportedly been updated according to the latest intelligence on the Syrian army’s numbers and strength of arms.
