Rebels battle Syrian forces along border

Syrian rebels fire heavy machine guns at military jets in Ras al-Ain. Rebels claimed the border town last week, prompting an offensive from President Bashar al-Assad's forces. The strikes have sent residents fleeing across the border to Turkey where a barbed wire fence is the only thing separating it from war-torn Syria. Attacks along the border have drawn repeated warnings from Turkey, as it considers positioning missiles to protect its territory. A Turkish hospital is treating the wounded, some of them pulled from under the rubble of houses. This refugee said many died when jets bombed his town and the survivors had to flee. The battles have sent thousands more into Turkish refugee camps in one of the largest movements in the 19-month conflict.
