According to the Transatlantic Trends 2013 survey, the majority of Turks are against any potential military intervention in Syria, rather like their European and American counterparts.

In Turkey, 72 percent of respondents, said their country should stay out of Syria, up 15 percentage points from last year, while only 21 percent – down 11 percentage points – favoured intervention.

The respondents were told that there had recently been discussion about intervening in Syria, where the government has been using military force to suppress an opposition movement. They were then asked whether their government should stay out completely or intervene.
