At least 20 Syrian soldiers were killed on Friday in fighting over the Ras al-Ain border post, one of only two crossings on the Turkish border still in regime hands, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Fighting over the post left at least 16 Syrian soldiers and 10 rebels dead on Thursday, the Observatory said, and Ankara said some 8,000 refugees had fled the area into Turkey overnight.
