Looks like this might be what Turkey was threatening yesterday...

(Reuters) - A Turkish broadcaster said on Tuesday Turkey would set up a buffer zone on its border with Syria, but a Turkish government official said he had no such information.

CNN Turk broadcast the news in a rolling headline. It gave no source and did not say what form the buffer zone, presumably involving encroachment on Syrian territory, would take.


UPDATE: Looks like Turkey was simply threatening not to talk to Syria
