Issa, the Kurdish official, said more than 800 YPG fighters have been killed in the 58 days of fighting, and estimated that 500 civilians were killed.

"The UN Security Council should urgently demand a United Nations monitoring team be granted immediate access to areas of Eastern Ghouta, now under government control" Human Rights Watch said in a report issued Sunday, adding that there are "serious concerns about how the government forces will treat residents in areas that come under its control, given past reports of reprisal executions". "The flag of the Free Syrian Army will fly over there!" said Erdogan who was speaking at a ceremony marking the battle to open the Dardanelles during World War I.

With support of Russian military and Syrian aviation, army units have continued its successful advance in Eastern Ghouta.

Sixty patients were evacuated from the main town of Douma on Saturday, a medical source told AFP, on the fifth day straight of such evacuations.

At least 200,000 civilians had fled the city over the last week, the Observatory said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Syrian government was in control of more than 80% of the area, which has been a rebel stronghold since 2012.

Erdogan has repeatedly said that Turkey will not allow a "terror corridor" along its border and has vowed to push east after Afrin.

Earlier this week, they largely surrounded the enclave's sole city, which was home to some 350,000 people, including people displaced from other parts of the enclave already overrun. He said YPG fighters remain deployed in areas of Afrin.

On Thursday, thousands fled the enclave of Eastern Ghouta as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government forces advanced into rebel-held areas - making it the largest mass displacement in the enclave since regime forces and their allies first began their siege of the area in 2013. Erdogan has said the people of Afrin will return.

The Turkish Armed Forces said in a tweet that it is now searching the area for mines and home-made explosives.

Turkey's military denied hitting the hospital, saying that its operation in Afrin "is carried out in such a way as to not cause any harm to civilians". "Mobile clinics are providing medical services and vaccinations to children under five".

Ankara sees the YPG as a Syrian offshoot of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has been waging an insurgency inside Turkey since 1984. Erdogan threatened to move to Manbij, a Kurdish-run town to the east where US troops have also maintained a presence after it was cleared of Islamic State militants in 2016.
