Syria‘s uprising began with peaceful protests in March 2011 and later escalated into a civil war that the opposition says has killed more than 40,000 people.

Fighting continued around Syria on Wednesday, with rebels clashing with government trips around the capital, Damascus, and elsewhere.

In the north, a Syrian jet bombed the rebel-held town of Tal Abyad, near the Turkish border, and rebels responded with anti-aircraft fire, Turkey’s state-run Anadolu agency said. At least two people injured in the attacks were brought to the Turkish border town of Akcakale for treatment.
