Turkey, U.S. at odds over Syria\'s civil war

ISIL is a stubborn presence in Syria where the civil war is about to enter its fifth year. Turkey and the United States remain at odds over how to deal with the crisis with no solution in sight, some say it's time for the West to rethink its regional strategy. CCTV's Natalie Carey has more from Istanbul.

Highlights:

  • More than a third of Syria’s estimated nine million refugees are in Turkey.
  • Turkey says a No-Fly zone and sending combat troops to Syria will win the fight.
  • In early March the U.S. announced it is considering a U.S.-enforced no-fly zone or protected corridor in northern Syria.
