Paris, Sep 7. -About 70 percent of French citizens are against France''s involvement in a military aggression against Syria, according to a poll by the Ifop Institute published here on Saturday.

Questioned on their position on a hypothetical intervention of allied forces in Syria, 68 percent of those surveyed said that they rejected any military intervention to solve the conflict. This accounts for an increase of 9 points compared to another poll carried out on August 29.

The survey included 732 people over 18 years of age in representation of the French population.
