A second day of aerial strikes on Syrian towns near the Turkish border is continuing to cause chaos.

Some refugees can be seen squeezing under barbed wire fences to enter Turkey.

Medical workers and refugees in Ceylanpinar say bombs have fallen on residential areas of Rad al-Ain, an Arab and Kurdish town that fell to rebels last week during an advance into Syria’s northeast.

Opposition activists say at least a dozen people were killed on Monday, the latest of an estimated 38,000 victims of the 19 month civil war.

Turkey is reluctant to be drawn into a regional conflict but the proximity of the air raids to the border is testing its pledge to defend itself from any violation of its territory or any spillover of violence from Syria.
