A contingent of German Patriot missile units arrived at the Turkish port of Iskenderun on Monday (January 21) after a two-week voyage.
Germany shipped out the Patriots as part of a NATO operation to bolster Turkey's defence against a threat of air attacks from Syria.
German Patriot surface-to-air missiles will be deployed to Kahramanmaras Province in southeastern Turkey, about 100 kilometres away from the Syrian border.
The Netherlands, Germany and the United States are each sending two Patriot missile batteries and up to 400 troops to Turkey after Ankara asked for NATO's help.
