Ankara, which considers the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) in Syria a "terror" group, has vowed to carry on and possibly expand the operation, launched January 20, despite worldwide concern and strained relations with Washington.

There have been reports of detentions since the onset of the military operation, including journalists critical of the government's military moves, though some have since been released.

Also detained were members of the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP).

Rami Abdurrahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said Turkish troops briefly seized the hill but lost it to Kurdish fighters hours later.

At least 14 people, including five children, died Sunday in Turkish air strikes on the region, the Observatory said.

The Antiquities and Museums Department on Sunday condemned the Turkish attacks that targeted archeological sites in the Kurdish-held Afrin region in northern Syria, according to state news agency SANA.

And in a sign the Turkish campaign has rendered prospects for peace in Syria even fainter, authorities in the war-torn country's Kurdish autonomous region said they will not attend peace talks in Russia's Sochi.

The Kurdish militia known as the People's Protection Units, or YPG, said Turkey sent reinforcements to the area following intense airstrikes.

Rebel backer Turkey is one of the sponsors of the talks in the Black Sea resort on Monday and Tuesday, along with Damascus allies Russian Federation and Iran.
