Turkey has deployed additional troops and equipment along part of its border with Syria as fighting north of the city of Aleppo intensifies, security sources said, but Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said there were no immediate plans for any incursion.Davutoglu said Assad, whose forces and allied militias hold western districts of Aleppo, had been cooperating with Islamic State militants in attacking the moderate opposition.He said Syrians in Aleppo would not receive basic necessities like food and medicine if fighting cut the city off, creating a massive new influx of people to Turkey, which is already sheltering more than 1.8 million Syrian refugees.
