It was said at least 1,000 people fled villages near the border town of Ceylanpinar.
The Syrian air force maintained its attacks of Ras al-Ayn, the Syrian town that touches on Ceylanpinar and is divided from it by a wire fence.
As Turkish jets circled the area, Ismet Yilmaz, the defence minister, ordered the air force to be prepared to retaliate in case of Syrian regime incursions. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
