US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned Friday of the possibility of a civil war in Syria that either is directed or influenced by Syrian army defectors.

“I think there could be a civil war with a very determined and well-armed and eventually well-financed opposition that is, if not directed by, certainly influenced by defectors from the army,” Clinton told the US network NBC.

“We’re already seeing that, something that we hate to see because we are in favor of a peaceful… protest and non-violent opposition,” the chief US diplomat said.

In Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Thursday that an attack like the one on a Syrian intelligence base by army defectors — who have formed the Free Syria Army – could lead the country into a civil war.
