The Turkish community in Europe held a rally in Brussels on Sunday, in support of the ongoing military operation against Kurdish militia in Afrin.
Protesters waved Turkish flags and proudly displayed images of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The Union of European Turkish Democrats (UETD), a lobbying group closely associated with the president, organised the rally in the Belgian capital in the... Еще landmark Schuman Square where major EU institutions stand.
In January, Erdogan announced the beginning of operation 'Olive Branch'. Turkey views the People's Protection Units (YPG), which is active in northern Syria, as an extension of the banned militant group Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
