REYHANLI - More than 4,000 people fleeing violence in Syria have entered neighboring Turkey in the past three days, bringing the total number of Syrian refugees there to 59,710, Turkish authorities said on Monday.

At the end of July, some 44,000 Syrian refugees had been registered in Turkey.

Battles rage in the northern city of Aleppo, where tanks, artillery and snipers attacked rebels in the Saif al-Dawla district next to the devastated area of Salaheddine.

Turkish officials are concerned about a possible flood of refugees from the city.

The conflict has created a refugee crisis in Turkey and other neighboring countries. Opposition sources say at least 18,000 people have been killed since the revolt against President Bashar Assad began in March 2011.
