BEIRUT - A rebel ambush in northern Syria killed 15 security force members on Wednesday, including two colonels, as fighting flared in Aleppo province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The Britain-based group said two rebels were also killed in the clashes, another breach of a UN-backed ceasefire aimed at halting the fighting between Syrian forces and rebels who are part of the year-long revolt against Syrian President Bashar Assad.
