Syrian refugees cross border to fight

Al Jazeera meets a Syrian who alternates life as a refugee in Turkey with fighting in his homeland.

    Turkey's border region has become a safe haven for Syrians who cross the border to attack government forces.

    They use old smuggling routes to evacuate injured and as a supply line for food and medicine.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons meets one man who alternates living as a refugee in Turkey with time spent fighting with the Free Syrian Army.
