Beirut (AFP) – At least 30,000 people have fled fighting between jihadists and rebels in northern Syria in the past 48 hours, Human Rights Watch said, calling on Turkey to open its border to them.

The watchdog accused Turkish border guards of shooting at some of those displaced in Aleppo province by fighting between the Islamic State group and opposition rebels as they approached the frontier.
