Turkey Closes Syrian Border

Because of fighting between rebels


(CNN) — Turkey has temporarily closed crossings to and from Syria along its border due to fighting between opposition groups inside Syria, the Turkish Commerce and Customs Ministry said Wednesday.

The announcement came shortly after the United States and Britain suspended non-lethal aid to the Syrian opposition.

Syrian National Coalition spokesman Louay Safi called the move "a temporary measure to sort out the situation in northern Syria," where the Free Syrian Army lost a weapons depot to the Islamic Front in fighting in recent days.
