A hospital in northeastern Syria has received "massive" numbers of injured people from Ras al-Ayn, a key border town of which the Turkish military has taken parts.
Al-Shaab Hospital director Dr. Mohammed Said added that most people arriving were "suffering from serious wounds".
Turkey said the taking of central Ras al-Ayn was its most significant gain since its cross-border operation began against Syrian Kurdish fighters.
Since Wednesday, Turkish troops and Syrian opposition fighters backed by Ankara have been advancing under the cover of air strikes and artillery shelling, reaching the Manbij-Qamishli road about 30 kilometres (19 miles) south of the Turkish border.
Turkey said it aims to push back the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units, or YPG, which it considers terrorists for its links to a decades-long Kurdish insurgency within its own borders.
The YPG is a main component of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
The UN estimated the number of displaced at 100,000 since Wednesday, saying markets, schools and clinics were also closed.
Aid agencies warned of a humanitarian crisis, with nearly a half-million people at risk in northeastern Syria.
