GUVECCI, Turkey - Syrian rebels have seized a Syrian army outpost near the Turkish border and a rebel flag flew over the building on Sunday, while clashes could be heard in the area of a nearby Syrian village, a Reuters witness and villagers said.

Villagers said the rebels had taken control of the three-story white building, around 1 km (mile) from the border on a hill overlooking the Turkish village of Guvecci, on Saturday, and raised the flag of the Free Syrian Army above it.
