U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said after a meeting with her Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu in Istanbul on Saturday that 'Washington and Ankara should develop detailed operational planning on ways to assist the armed gangs fighting to topple Assad'.

“Our intelligence services, our military have very important responsibilities and roles to play so we are going to be setting up a working group to do exactly that,” she said.

The United States and Turkey indicated they were studying a range of possible measures over Syria, including a no-fly zone.

The US-Turkey announcement followed the news that the Syrian troops pushed back the by the US and Britain armed gangs in the Aleppo offensive.

Some days ago, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Britain steps up its support for the gangs, providing them with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million).

And last week President Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for the armed gangs seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.

The US and its allies used the so-called 'no-fly zone' to bomb and to destroy Iraq and Libya. In both cases, the bombings followed a months-long war campaign. As is the case in the war against Syria now, the US and its allies armed the gangs and provided them with the most modern satellite phones while American, British, French and israeli satellites flew over Libya.
