2400 Syrians Cross into Turkey Overnight.
The Anatolia news agency said Wednesday that included two generals and two colonels.
There has been a marked increase in the number of refugees fleeing to Turkey in the past two days. Officials reported 1,328 arrivals on Tuesday as rebels tried to expand their hold inside Aleppo, Syria's largest city, close to the border.
Some 50,000 Syrians have now found refuge in Turkey, which has served as a staging ground for rebels fighting President Bashar Assad's regime. Even more refugees have crossed into Jordan and Lebanon. (Cihan/Today's Zaman)
