Syrian regime soldiers are reported to have seized control of a rebel-held refugee camp north of the beleaguered northwestern city of Aleppo from militants, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a rebel official, and a state-run TV station reported.

Sources belonging to both the Syrian military and the militants confirmed the recapture of the Handarat camp on Saturday.

The capture of Handarat camp "comes as a result of intensive bombardment by regime forces and the fierce, continuous bombardment by Russian and regime warplanes," the Observatory said in a report.
