By Humeyra Pamuk ONCUPINAR, Turkey (Reuters) - Russian and Syrian government forces gained ground north of Aleppo on Saturday, intensifying an assault on rebel-held areas that has prompted tens of thousands more Syrians to seek refuge across the border in Turkey.

Russia's intervention has tipped the war President Bashar al-Assad's way, reversing gains the rebels made last year.
