Erdogan, who has backed rebels fighting to oust Assad, has said Turkey has no problem with Syrian government forces deploying near the border.
Ankara's long-declared plan was to drive the militia 30-35 km away from the border and establish there a safe zone which would stretch all along the border from the Euphrates River to Iraq in the east. Most of those refugees fled Syria's government. But a defense official later clarified the statement should have read "YPG", a Kurdish self-defense force Turkey says is part of a separatist Kurdish terrorist group which has also helped the United States in its counter-ISIS operations.

A partial evacuation took place Saturday. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human puts the death toll higher, saying 86 people have been killed, including 21 children.
Turkish officials denied violating the cease-fire or impeding the fighters' withdrawal, blaming the continued violence on the Kurds.
