Hemo's own unit refrained from calling her a suicide attacker in its statement but said that "the heroine Avesta attacked the tank and blew herself up with the tank".

There are also reports that Turkish air strikes have seriously damaged an ancient temple in the region.

Fresh images showed all the statues were destroyed.

After launching its Olive Branch operation in Syria's Afrin, the Turkish authorities said that the operation was likely to expand towards the neighboring city of Manbij, where the U.S. has some 2,000 of its military personnel deployed.

President Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday that Turkey will "clean" its entire border with Syria in a sign that the Turkish offensive on the Syrian Kurdish YPG group in northern Syria's Afrin region could be extended further.

"This highlights the fundamental difficulty of a USA strategy that requires maintaining active alliances with two forces which are at war with each other", said Noah Bonsey, a Syria analyst at the International Crisis Group who is on a visit to the Kurdish areas of northeastern Syria. The Kurds in Afrin were not involved in fighting Daesh and have not received American assistance, USA officials say. The fighting has continued all week.

Earlier this month, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that Ankara will not limit its precautionary measures against Kurdish fighters to Syria's Afrin district but could move to Manbij, also in Aleppo province.

He also voiced concern for a group of 40 ancient villages in the Afrin region, which UNESCO calls "Ancient Villages of Northern Syria" and includes on its world heritage list.

"We express our objection to the attacks by the Turkish army on the city of Afrin and the killing of civilians. Afrin will be a cemetery for fascism".

He has vowed the military action will go on as long as it is necessary to "clear" the area of the Kurdish fighters.

Faced with the Turkish onslaught, the YPG's political arm the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) appealed to the worldwide community to pressure Ankara into halting its offensive.

After taking the town of Jarablus near the Syrian border, Turkey sought to boost the Euphrates Shield forces - a disparate coalition of rebel militias - with a group of trained fighters to combat ISIS and guard frontiers against Kurdish forces.
