Levin has been one of the leading Democrats pushing for the Obama administration to do more in Syria, including setting up a no-fly zone.
Last year, Obama warned that the use of chemical weapons was a “red line” that would change his calculus toward the conflict.
During the stops in Jordan and Turkey, Levin plans to meet with foreign leaders, U.S. military commanders and U.S. troops serving there, according to his office.
Levin’s Armed Services colleague Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) generated a wave of headlines when he made a similar trip last month, as McCain snuck inside the Syrian border to meet with rebel groups and military leaders.
