WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned of the risk of escalation in the Middle East amid reports Syrian forces raided a village bordering Turkey in pursuit of pro-democracy protesters.
Syrian troops backed by tanks stormed the village of Khirbet al-Joz, where many of the displaced protesters had massed, an activist at the scene told AFP
“And it just is very clear to us that unless the Syrian forces immediately end their attacks and their provocations that are not only now affecting their own citizens but endangering the potential border clashes, then we’re going to see an escalation of conflict in the area,” Clinton said.
