A Turkish offensive in northeast Syria has killed 218 civilians, including 18 children since it started a week ago, the Kurdish-led administration in the region said yesterday.

The fighting has also wounded more than 650 people, the statement from its health authority said.

The Kurdish-led authority in northeast Syria also called for a corridor "to evacuate dead and wounded civilians" from Ras al-Ain town which Turkish forces have pushed into.

It said in a statement that people were trapped in the Syrian border town, urging foreign powers including the US-led coalition and Russia, to intervene to get them out.
