Germany: Rival Kurdish, Turkish rallies clash in Frankfurt

Frankfurt police intervened in protests when hundreds of pro-Kurdish pro-Turkish demonstrators clashed during the rival rallies on Wednesday. Protesters confronted each other and the police, with some seen getting arrested. Ahmet Grohtas, pro-Turkish demonstrator explained that people, gathered for pro-Turkish rally are standing against the «injustice in the media». «We want to make clear... Еще today that this war is not against the Kurdish people, but against the terror organizations PKK and PYD, YPG and IS,» he added. Another pro-Turkish protester agreed stressing that the goal of Turkish operation in Syrian Afrin district is «peace and stability.» Operation 'Olive Branch' is a military operation being undertaken by the Turkish military in Afrin, northern Syria, with the aim of ousting Kurdish groups from the region. On Saturday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the beginning of the military operation against the Kurdish YPG militia. Turkey views the YPG, which is active in northern Syria, as an extension of the banned militant group the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
