Germany: Turkish airstrikes in Syria spark fury in Berlin

Hundreds of Kurds demonstrated in Berlin on Saturday to protest against the Turkish military operation in the Kurdish enclave of Afrin in Syria. They gathered at Hermannplatz, marching to Oranienplatz, shouting 'Erdogan fascist' and 'Let Afrin free.' Tensions occurred when demonstrators passed by a Turkish bar: they whistled and shouted 'Shame of you', while police turned them away. At the... Еще end of the rally, some of the protesters set a picture of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on fire. The Turkish government wants to oust Kurdish fighters from Syria's Afrin district because it considers them terrorists. On Saturday, Turkey launched air strikes on Kurdish positions in northern Syria, targeting the Kurdish YPG (Syrian Kurdish People's Protection) and Islamic State (IS). The Turkish army announced that 108 Kurdish militants had been killed in the city of Afrin city and the surrounding villages.
