    More than 40-thousand Syrians have crossed into Turkey.  
    A steady stream of refugees cross into Turkey from Syria.

    The border is important as a route for to evacuate the injured and as a supply line for food and medicine.

    However, even fighters cross into Turkey, not for shelter, but to collect supplies.

    For the Syrian free army footpaths through a forest are a lifeline.
