Around 70,000 Syrian refugees head to Turkey
Syrian refugees are moving to Turkey's border to flee heavy fighting near the city of Aleppo, the BBC reports quoting officials and activists as saying.
Ahmet Davutoglu, Turkish Prime Minister, said up to 70,000 may be heading to the border, while a monitoring group put the number at about 40,000.
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.
A Saudi military spokesman said the country is ready to send ground troops to Syria to fight the so-called Islamic State group.
Saudi Brig Gen Ahmad Bin-Hasan al-Asiri told the Associated Press news agency that any decision would have to be accepted by leaders of the US-led coalition during a meeting in Brussels next month.
The offer was welcomed by US Defence Secretary Ash Carter, who said that he would discuss the issue with the Saudi defence minister in Brussels next week.
