The Army of Islam said the wounded will be evacuated in stages but made no mention if they are rebel fighters or civilians. Turkish troops have destroyed water and power stations that supply the town of Afrin, making it hard for people to stay there, Ebrahim said. The monitoring group says children account for around a fifth of all civilian victims of the assault. He blamed Russian Federation and Turkey for what he called "war crimes that are being committed in Afrin".

Syrian troops cut off the major Eastern Ghouta towns of Douma and Harasta from the rest of the opposition enclave on Sunday, the Associated Press reported.
