Free Syrian Army chief Riyadh al-Asaad on Thursday called for foreign air strikes on “strategic targets” in Syria to speed up the fall of the regime, in a telephone interview with AFP.

“We are not in favour of the entry of foreign troops as was the case in Iraq but we want the international community to give us logistical support,” said FSA chief Colonel Asaad, who is based across the border in Turkey.

“We also want international protection, the establishment of a no-fly zone, a buffer zone and strikes on certain strategic targets considered as crucial by the regime,” he said.

In contrast, the leader of the main Syrian opposition group in exile said after talks in Paris on Wednesday that his organisation does not want to see rebels launch armed attacks on President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.
