Syrian dictator Bashar Assad can feel the noose around his neck
tightening. France is now calling for a humanitarian corridor in
Syria and multiple reports talk of a Turkish-Arab military

is telling its citizens to immediately leave the country. War
may be on the horizon.
On Thursday, the French Foreign Minister asked the Arab League
to endorse a “secured zone to protect civilians” in Syria.
France is also officially embracing the Syrian National Council,
an umbrella of opposition groups and figures, as a legitimate
body. Foreign Minister Alain Juppe played a game of semantics,
saying France was not endorsing a military intervention for a
“buffer zone,” while admitting that the proposed “secured zone”
would need military protection to ensure the delivery of aid.
At the same time, Israeli officials expect Turkey to soon
establish buffer zones within Syrian territory near the border
to create a safe haven for civilians and military defectors. The
Turks are already housing the leadership of the Free Syria Army
that is waging an armed struggle against Assad. The Kuwaiti
Al-Rai newspaper is being told by senior sources in Europe that
the plan is for a no-fly zone to be enforced by Arab and
possibly Turkish air power after the Arab League approves of it.
The U.S. will be involved behind-the-scenes, offering logistical
support but no direct participation. NATO has ruled out military
action in Syria.

only stopping Syrian airplanes and helicopters, which have been
rarely used in putting down the uprising. It will enforce a ban
on all movement of military vehicles and artillery, forcing them
off of the streets. It is hoped that Assad’s military will be
forced to end operations “in less than 24 hours.” This account
differs from the Israeli one in that it states that Turkey has
ruled out sending its military into Syrian territory to create a
