No Decision to Move Forward With No-Fly Zone in Syria: Kirby

“There are a lot of challenges with doing a no-fly zone” in Syria, and U.S. continues “to have discussions about how to best go after” Islamic State militants, State Dept spokesman John Kirby tells reporters during briefing.

  • Obstacles to establishing no-fly zone include “issue of resources,” Kirby says
  • At White House briefing, spokesman Josh Earnest says no-fly zone is “not something we’re considering right now”
  • NOTE: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said last week she supports a no-fly zone in Syria
