Lebanon: Lebanese Kurds protest Afrin assault outside Russian Embassy

Lebanon’s Kurdish community took to the streets outside the Russian Embassy in Beirut on Monday and held a protest decrying the Turkish incursion into the Syrian-Kurdish territory of Afrin. On Saturday, Turkish war planes started to bomb Kurdish positions in Afrin shortly after the country's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the launch of the military operation named ‘Olive Branch... Еще.’ Turkey views the Kurdish YPG militia, which is active in northern Syria, as an extension of the banned militant group the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
