This is an interesting piece to read:

"Ankara has been talking about intervention for quite some time, but unless it can secure wider international participation it remains very unlikely," said Julien Barnes-Dacey, a Middle East specialist at the European Council on Foreign Relations. "There is a definite risk that Assad could resist the move militarily, trying to make it too costly an exercise for the Turks and others to pursue."
There are two things that the regime might do if the Turks spearhead a foreign intervention into the country: the first is to increase their support for the Kurdish PKK group; the second is to see some kind of indirect attacks carried out through "local" resistance type groups - armed and supported by the regime itself.
