The battle for Ras al Ain raged as Turkey pursued a four-day-old, cross-border offensive against a Syrian Kurdish militia despite an outcry from the USA and European Union and warnings of possible sanctions unless Ankara desisted.

Shokry said that halting the assault on Syria is an global condition to start UN-backed negotiations aimed at settling the Syrian crisis backed.

Ankara considers the YPG a "terrorist" offshoot of Kurdish rebels who have been fighting an insurgency against the Turkish state for three decades.

Turkey's military also issued a statement insisting it was an accident and that it was returning fire on the Kurds.

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu also dismissed an offer by Trump to mediate between Ankara and Kurdish YPG forces. "The only thing to be done is for these terrorists to lay down arms".

According to four current and former US officials, cited by The Washington Post, Turkish forces knew for months that a US Special Operations outpost was stationed in the area.

Shokry added that it is the right of all Syrians to defend themselves against the offensive that breaches all relevant worldwide laws stressing that Egypt will be among the first states to support Arab efforts in the face of that aggression and hold liable its perpetrators.

In a telephone call to the Turkish leader, the Prime Minister voiced his "grave concern" that the action could worsen the humanitarian situation in the region and undermine the fight against so-called Islamic State (IS).

In its first big attack since the assault began, IS claimed responsibility for a deadly auto bomb on Friday in Qamishli, the largest city in the Kurdish-held area.

U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Friday that Turkey would risk "serious consequences" if it doesn't cease its attacks and - while announcing that Trump will sign an executive order giving his administration broad authority to hit the country with sanctions - U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin claimed that "we can shut down the Turkish economy if we need to".
