Lebanon: Pro-Kurdish rally held outside UN building in Beirut

Pro-Kurdish rally was organised in front of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for West Asia (ESCWA) in Beirut on Friday, to protest against Turkey's military offensive against Kurdish forces in northern Syria. Protesters carried banners depicting Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK) founder Abdullah Ocalan as well as various Kurdish flags, such as of Democratic Union Party (PYD) for... Еще Rojava and People's Protection Units (YPG). People sang slogans denouncing Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and stepped on his portrait. ''Trump and America, [it] is like a game they play with countries and suddenly withdraw. And they tell us today 'we are with you' but they support the other side and I hope no one listens to Trump because he's a crazy man,'' said Omar, one of the protesters. Turkey's military offensive 'Operation Peace Spring' entered its third day on Friday, with clashes between the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and Turkish forces continuing along Syrian border towns.
