A rebel ambush in northern Syria killed 15 security force members on today, including two colonels, as fighting flared in Aleppo province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
 
The Britain-based group said two rebels were also killed in the clashes, another breach of a U.N.-backed ceasefire aimed at halting the fighting between Syrian forces and rebels who are part of the year-long revolt against President Bashar al-Assad.
