Well at least they are not defecting to the Free Syria Army...It appears the house of cards is falling down for Assad. He won't be in power much longer at this rate.

Turkey's state-run news agency says 33 more members of the Syrian military have defected to Turkey with their families at a time of heightened tensions between the two countries over Syria's downing of a Turkish plane
That's a lot of people, some of them are very high ranking too.
