‘More Visible’ U.S. Role Expected in Syria in Coming Weeks, Turkey Says

•, Patrick Goodenough
 The United States will take on a “more visible” role in the Syria crisis in the coming weeks, a Turkish newspaper quoted unnamed Turkish officials as saying, after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a weekend visit discussed options that could include “no-fly zones” along Syria’s borders.“Officials underscored that ‘a new stage’ has begun in Syria, adding that American involvement in Syria will become more visible in the upcoming weeks,” said the report in Today’s Zaman.

Turkey, which is already providing shelter to than 55,000 Syrian refugees – a number growing by 3,000 a day, according to Ankara – has long been mulling the idea of some sort of no-fly zone or safe haven just inside Syrian territory, as requested by some Syrian opposition groups.
