The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has claimed Turkish backed fighters cross the border into Syria and entered Shakariya, a village east of Ras al-Ayn. Erdogan's spokesman, Kalin, confirmed that is the area affected by the pause in fighting, but said Turkey still wants the larger zone.
"We completely reject the baseless claims in Amnesty International's report on the Operation Peace Spring", the ministry said in a written statement on October 20.
34 percent said they want them to return if the conflict continues.
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, there are believed to be 3.6 million Syrian refugees registered in Turkey.
Unconfirmed reports have also emerged that Turkish-allied forces have used white phosphorus, a chemical weapon which causes bad burns, in Syria. The five-day cease-fire in the region was announced by Vice President Mike Pence after Turkey agreed to temporarily pause in its military operation.
A senior Syrian Kurdish official acknowledged for the first time that the Kurdish-led forces agreed to the pullback, stating that his forces would move 30 kilometers (19 miles) south of the border.
Kurdish-led fighters and Turkish-backed forces clashed sporadically Sunday in northeastern Syria amid efforts to work out a Kurdish evacuation from a besieged border town, the first pull-back under the terms of a USA -brokered ceasefire.
Trump ordered the withdrawal of most of the US troops in Syria after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his forces were about to invade Syria to push back Kurdish fighters that Turkey views as terrorists.
Khalil said Kurdish-led fighters would pull back from a 120-kilometer (75-mile) stretch along the border from Ras al-Ayn to Tal Abyad, moving past the worldwide highway.
Some fighters have vowed not to withdraw, calling the accord an "insult to Kurdish dignity" and tantamount to a surrender arranged by the US, the former ally that abandoned them to the Turkish assault.
If the agreement with the United States, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally, for the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia to withdraw falters, Turkey will continue its military operation from where it left off, Erdogan said.
Gen. Mazloum Kobani, commander of the Syrian Democratic Forces, said that the USA bears full responsibility for what is happening.
"Our delegation has engaged in vital discussions about the impact to regional stability, increased flow of refugees, and the unsafe opening that has been provided to ISIS, Iran and Russia", Pelosi said in a statement.
Ras al-Ayn, under siege by Turkish-backed fighters, has been the scene of continual fighting since the ceasefire came into place on Thursday night.
Both sides have been accusing each other of violating the terms of the cease-fire and not following the agreement.
Yesterday SDF commander Abdi accused Turkey of sabotaging the truce by blocking the withdrawal of his forces from flashpoint border town Ras al-Ain. "Free Syrian Army checkpoint let us pass and we went directly into the hospital evacuated 37 and some of the dead", he said. He claimed Turkey needs to kill Kurdish fighters somewhat than letting them withdraw, because the ceasefire requires.
A pull-back would be a major boost to the deal. In the area where the operation is taking place, the troops of the regime [of Syrian President Bashar Assad] are under the protection of Russian Federation. "We see a stability of the lines, if you will, on the ground".
The border town of Kobani also stands between Turkish-controlled Syrian territories to the west and Kurdish-held eastern Syria.
"The deal essentially is handing Syrian land to a foreign country".
