      Israel Weighs Buffer Zone in Syria


      Israel is considering creating a buffer zone within Syria, the British Sunday Times reports. The zone would extend nearly 16 kilometers into Syria territory, and would be used to protect Israel from the ongoing violence in the country, particularly from rebel forces.

      Israel maintained a 25-kilometer buffer zone in Lebanon from 1985 to 2000.
