SOT, Adnan Buzan, Protester (Arabic): «I don't this so» Residents of the Kurdish-dominated city of Kobane took the streets on Wednesday to protest against the ongoing Turkish operation «Olive Branch» in Afrin. «The US is using the Kurds to combat IS. We fought IS in Syrian and Iraqi Kurdistan, it was the largest terrorist organization in the world, and we did that to the World. When we got rid... Еще of IS, the US started supporting our adversary to the Kurdish people under weak pretexts, so it is a shameful stance by the Americans,» one protester, Adnan Buzan, said. 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. Russian military promptly withdrew from the enclave on the same day. 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).
