France: Pro-Kurdish protesters march in Paris as Turkey launches Afrin airstrikes

Hundreds took to the streets of Paris on Saturday, to protest against the ongoing military operations of Turkey against the Kurdish-held Afrin in northern Syria. The protesters marched towards the square of the Republic, while holding anti-Erdogan and pro-Kurdish signs and banners. «Erdogan is leading a war against the Kurds, but at the same time it is because the Kurds are installing an... Еще autonomous democratic system, where men and women have equal responsibilities» Jean-Paul Lemarec, a member of the MRAP association said with regard to the Turkish offensive. According to Agit Polat, representative of the Kurdish Democratic Council in France, Turkey «never accepted that there is a Kurdish autonomy, never accepted that there is a Kurdish state». He added: «Turkey is afraid today.» Turkish war planes have launched airstrikes on Kurdish positions in Afrin at 14:00 GMT, after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the launch of the military operation dubbed 'Olive Branch'. The President also declared that the next destination for the Turkish forces would be Syria's Manbij.
