Kurds in Cyprus Protest Turkey’s Syria Operation

January 24, 2018

NICOSIA (AP) — Some 350 Kurds burned images of the presidents of Turkey and Russia as they marched on the U.S. and Russian embassies in the Cypriot capital Nicosia to protest Turkey’s “invasion” of a Kurdish enclave in northern Syria.

Waving Kurdish flags and those of the Syrian Kurdish militant group YPG, protesters chanted slogans calling Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan a “fascist” and “terrorist,” and called on Turkey to “get out of Kurdistan.”

They also denouncing what they said was Russia’s “betrayal” for allowing the military offensive to happen.

Protester Azad Baker told The Associated Press that Wednesday’s march was aimed at urging European nations to use their influence in order to stop the killing of civilians in the Kurdish enclave.

He said Kurds are fighting alone without U.S. help.
