Turkey calls for no-fly zone in Syria after US strike

AFP  |  Ankara 

Turkey called for a no-fly zone in Syria following a US strike on a Syrian airbase early today after dozens were killed in a suspected chemical attack in Idlib, northwestern Syria earlier this week.

"In order to prevent similar massacres from happening again, it is necessary to enforce a no-fly zone and create safe zones in Syria without further delay," Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said in a statement.
