A picture taken from the Turkish side of the border in Suruç, Şanlıurfa province, shows a Turkish solider standing as smoke rises from the Syrian town of Kobane, also known as Ain al-Arab, on June 27, 2015, a day after a deadly suicide bombing occurred.

State Department spokesman Mark Toner said there were "serious logistical challenges" in creating such buffer zones but he had not seen any concrete evidence either Jordan or Turkey, which both share borders with war-torn Syria, were considering such a zone.
