The leader of Turkey’s Felicity Party, Mustafa Kamalak, has warned that his country is the main target of the campaign against neighboring Syria.

Referring to the current developments in the Middle East, Kamalak also warned about “imperial powers’ plots to disintegrate Turkey.”

Ankara has already been under fire for supporting Syrian insurgents and giving them arms.

Turkish lawmaker Mevlut Dudu has accused the Turkish government of using ambulances to smuggle arms and ammunitions into Syria.

Dudu warned Ankara of the repercussions of arming insurgents, criticizing Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan for leading the country into a predicament by intervention in Syrian affairs.

Meanwhile, a senior Iranian military official criticized Turkey and a number of other regional states for interfering in Syria’s internal affairs.

Chairman of Iran’s Armed Forces Chiefs of Staff Major General Hassan Firouzabadi denounced on Monday Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar for their support for the “the warmongering goals of the United States and the bloodshed” in Syria.

On Thursday, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called for an immediate end to violence against civilians in Syria.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Damascus says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving factor behind the unrest and deadly violence while the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.

The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the armed insurgents are foreign nationals.
