Syrian President Bashar Assad must end his military operations against civilian protesters if he wants to avoid "go[ing] the way of Libya's leadership," Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu is expected to warn Damascus in a visit Tuesday, the Hurriyet Daily News reported on Monday.

The visit to Syria by Turkey's top diplomat comes as Arab states were pulling their ambassadors out of Damascus and comes on the heels of a consultation between the Turkish leadership and US Mideast envoy Fred Hof on Monday.

Hof's visit was intended to coordinate the stances of Washington and Ankara ahead of Davutoglu's trip to Syria, according to the report.
