Mideast Syria Turkeys Role

Mideast Syria Turkeys Role

FILE - In this Monday, Oct. 11, 2010 file photo, Syrian President Bashar Assad, right, shakes hands with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, left, at al-Shaab presidential palace in Damascus, Syria. Within minutes of news breaking of a coup against Recep Tayyeb Erdogan, government-held areas in Syria broke out in celebratory gunfire that lasted throughout the night. In bars across the capital Damascus, revelers celebrated the news, drinking to the removal of Turkey's strongman they blame for fueling their country's five-year civil war. But Erdogan survived, and judging by the surprise reversal of rebel fortunes in Aleppo this week, so has his support for the rebels. (AP Photo/Bassem Tellawi, File)
