Azaz has seen brutal fighting in order to secure the northernmost crossing with Turkey. The remnants of fighting and the subsequent shelling, that saw 50 dead, are seen throughout the town, in burnt-out tanks and piles of rubble. The residents fear further shelling, even as they live among daily reminders of the battle to free the town from Bashar Al-Assad's forces.

Although the border with Turkey remains open, the northernmost Syrian town of Azaz is still recovering from shelling that destroyed much of the town. Just getting into the town is a reminder of the carnage that continues right up to the border regions: a van transporting workers between Syria and Turkey displays bullet holes from fighting.
