The U.S. is considering setting up a limited no-fly zone along Syria’s southern border with Jordan in order to protect refugees and rebel forces training in the area.

That’s part of the United States’ proposal to provide military aid to the Syrian rebels.

They are also going to provide arms, ammunition and potentially anti-tank weapons.

Meanwhile the Syrian and Russian government denies using chemical weapons in the country’s civil war.
