      Syria Imposes Customs Duties on Turkish Goods


      Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad issued an order, Thursday, imposing a 30-percent customs duty on goods imported from Turkey, according to Syria's official news agency. The presidential order confirms a vote by the Syrian parliament on Monday.

      Turkey has been critical of Al-Assad's violent suppression of dissent, which has resulted in more than 5,000 known deaths in the country since March.
