Article Photos: NATO moves toward deployment on Syria border 6/11

In this photo taken on Wednesday Dec. 5, 2012, Syrian citizens cross from the area that controlled by the Syrian forces loyal to president Bashar Assad, to an area controlled by the Free Syrian Army, at the only crossing point between the two groups, in Aleppo, Syria. Syria blasted NATO's move to deploy Patriot missiles along its border with Turkey, calling the decision "provocative," as the West took a major step toward a possible military role in the civil war.
