An explosion that eyewitnesses said was a car bomb tore through a Syrian refugee camp at a border post on the frontier with Turkey Thursday, killing more than a dozen people.A Turkish border official said the blast near Turkey's Oncupinar border post, which sits opposite the Syrian Bab al-Salameh gate, could be felt several kilometers away.The eyewitness agreed that ISIS was likely behind the blast at the camp, which he said was home to approximately 20,000 people.In the city of Aleppo, eight soldiers were killed by a rebel suicide bombing at the city's central prison, which rebels have long been trying to capture, the Observatory said. And 18 rebel fighters were killed when they launched a dawn assault against an Alawite village in central Homs province. The Observatory said rebels were fighting on Yabroud's outskirts against government troops, backed by National Defense Forces militia and Lebanon's Hezbollah. Troops and members of the National Defense Forces militia pushed the rebels back, the group said.
