As the diplomatic wrangling rages over military action against Syria, fighting on ground appears to be continuing unabated.

A video uploaded to a social media website allegedly showed rebel forces storming a government held position in the Damascus suburb of al-Qalamoun.

Another film purported to show Free Syrian Army members brandishing parts of a Syrian airforce jet they claim to have shot down in the eastern city of Deir al-Zor.

Russian writing could be seen on parts of the wreckage of what was said to have been a MiG fighter.

Meanwhile, thousands of Syrian refugees are continuing to cross the Turkish border in large numbers.

According to Turkey’s Anatolian news agency, nearly eight thousand people entered the country over the last week. But an unknown number without passports are trying to flee the conflict by crossing the mountains.
