BERLIN (AA) – Supporters of the PKK/YPG terror group Saturday attacked a Turkish association and market in Germany.
In the town of Villingen-Schwenningen, southwestern Germany, the terror supporters attacked two Turkish citizen when they reacted against PKK supporters’ march against Turkey’s Operation Peace Spring in northern Syria.
“We have not been daunted by these attacks and we will not,” Ziya Karakuscu, the president of Villingen Turkish Workers Association, told Anadolu Agency.
Separately, a Turkish market in the city of Nuremberg was attacked by PKK/YPG supporters.
Turkey’s Consul General in Nuremberg Serdar Deniz visited the market and offered his sympathies.
Deniz also contacted with German police and demanded an explanation.
Turkey on Wednesday launched Operation Peace Spring to purge terrorists from northern Syria in order to secure Turkey’s borders, aid in the safe return of Syrian refugees, and ensure Syria’s territorial integrity.
Ankara wants to clear northern Syria east of the Euphrates River of the terrorist PKK and its Syrian offshoot, the PYD/YPG.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the European Union -- has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.
