The U.S. Embassy in Damascus on Wednesday urged all citizens in Syria to leave “immediately.” Turkey issued the same warning to its citizens, and also recommended that all Turkish travelers head back through Saudi Arabia to avoid going through Syria. The latest warnings came after Syrian soldiers opened fire on at least two buses carrying Turkish citizens returning home from Saudi Arabia. The U.S. pulled Ambassador Robert Ford out of Syria last month, and earlier this week the Obama administration announced he will not return. Syria descended further into chaos as security forces killed at least six in raids on the southern part of the country, raising the death toll in two days of violence to 34.
