It did not specify a location and did not give a death toll.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a monitoring group based in Britain, said the air strike, which hit a camp in Kafr Jina, was the third time in 48 hours that Turkish warplanes had struck pro-government forces in Afrin.

The Syrian government deployed fighters to the enclave a month later after the Kurds appealed for help.

The Turkish Armed Forces and Free Syrian Army (FSA) on Saturday captured seven more residential areas, including the Rajo town center northwest of Afrin, Anadolu's news agency reported.

Footage posted online by RT's Ruptly agency showed the demonstrators waving Kurdish flags and Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) flags, with others holding colored smoke grenades.

They also seized a strategic mountain in the northeast of the enclave, a military official from the Turkish-led operation said.

Turkey views the YPG as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has fought a three-decade insurgency in Turkey and is deemed a terrorist group by the United States, the European Union and Turkey.

This is while USA officials regard the YPG as the most effective fighting force against the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group in northern Syria, and have substantially increased their weaponry and technology support to the group.

Thousands of civilians in Afrin have fled their homes since Turkey's offensive began.

In earlier attacks, Turkish strikes killed 14 pro-regime fighters on Thursday and four on Friday.

The SDF said in a statement that Turkish airstrikes had targeted positions held by the Syrian army's "popular forces" from 5:00 a.m. (03:00 GMT) until 10:00 a.m. (08:00 GMT).

Turkey has been waging "Operation Olive Branch" against Syria's Afrin region since January 20 in a bid to eliminate the YPG, which forms the backbone of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which is backed by the US. Ankara says the operation is aimed at battling terrorists in the region, including the YPG.
