"We cannot look the other way while international law and human rights are flouted. We cannot step back from a crisis that could destabilize the heart of the Middle East. And it would be the height of irresponsibility to ignore potential threats to our own security."
Outlining the "next step" in UK support to Syria William Hague stressed that, "there may well have to be further steps."
