Tens of thousands of Syrian refugees are moving to Turkey's border to flee heavy fighting near the city of Aleppo.

Turkish Prime Minister said up to 70 thousand may be heading to the border, while a monitoring group put the number at about 40,000.

Intense Russian air strikes have helped Syria's government troops make advances near the country's largest city.

Meanwhile, Russia accused Turkey of preparing an invasion into Syria.
