Syrian activists say troops have made sweeping arrests in the flashpoint province of Hama as President Bashar al-Assad faces a growing challenge to his rule.

Shakfa, exiled Muslim Brotherhood leader, says his compatriots would accept
Turkish 'intervention' in Syria.

     

The leader of Syria's exiled Muslim Brotherhood said on Thursday that his compatriots would accept Turkish "intervention" in the country to resolve months of bloody unrest.

"The Syrian people would accept intervention coming from Turkey, rather than from the West, if its goal was to protect the people," Mohammad Riad Shakfa, Syria's Muslim Brotherhood leader, said in the Turkish city of Istanbul.

On Thursday, November 17, 2011,, pro-government daily Sabah reported that the opposition Syrian National Council (SNC), together with the Muslim Brotherhood, had asked Turkey to establish a no-fly zone on the Syrian side of the shared border to protect Syrian civilians.

Assad is facing severe isolation stemming from his crackdown on an 8-month-old uprising, which appears to be spiraling out his control.

Attacks by army defectors are growing, and world leaders are looking at possibilities for a Syrian government without Assad.
