A spokesman for the Kurdish-led forces in northern Syria says Turkish invading forces are displacing local populations in northern Syria.
"The goal of the Turkish state is to annihilate the region's population and replace them with Islamic extremists," spokesman Shervan Darwish of the Minbij Military Council says, adding that he views Turkey as an "occupying force" in Syria.
He said Turkish airstrikes have killed dozens of civilians, though a Turkish official this week denied these allegations. Darwish called for an international investigation into Turkey's offensive.
Turkish forces continued to pound 21 targets in northern Syria, the private Dogan news agency reported on Tuesday, amid a sharp rebuke from the United States over Ankara's actions against Kurdish fighters and a prodding to refocus on Islamic State.
Syrian rebels backed by the Turkish army took control of 11 villages from Kurdish-led forces in the north of the country in the past two days, while capturing only two new villages from Islamic State extremists, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported Monday.
Syrian Kurds condemn the Turkish incursion into Islamic State-held Jarablus, calling it a "declaration of war."
