Germany: Pro-Kurdish demonstrators clash with police in Berlin

A pro-Kurdish demonstration marched through the Kreuzberg district of Berlin on Sunday and scuffled with police en-route. Several hundred demonstrators took to the streets to protest Turkey's incursion into the north-western region of Afrin, in which they were chanting, carrying YPJ (Women's Protection Unit) flags, and brandishing placards. During the march, a Turkish man waved a Turkish flag... Еще from the window of his apartment, which caused outrage amongst the demonstrator. Then demonstrators then threw stones and bottles at him, and broke a window of the apartment. Reportedly, four men and two women were detained by police. In January, Erdogan announced the beginning of the operation against the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG). Turkey views the YPG, which is active in northern Syria, as an extension of the banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) group.
