Erdogan Bodyguards Fight Protesters Outside Embassy

Erdogan Bodyguards Fight Protesters Outside Embassy

The Turkish president was caught on camera observing the violence yesterday.

The clash happened at the Turkish ambassador's residence Tuesday as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan arrived after a White House meeting with President Donald Trump. At least two people were arrested and nine people were injured.

President Erdogan's security staff can be seen kicking and beating Turkish anti-government protesters in Washington.

Washington and Ankara are bitterly at odds over United States support for the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) in Syria, which Turkey considers a front for banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) separatists. Police said they were checking reports that some of the attackers worked as bodyguards for the Turkish president.

Sen. Patrick Leahy's tweet said "We've got to come back to American values".

"We told them ... we do not regard your cooperation with a terrorist group in Raqqa as healthy", Erdogan was cited as saying, but he said he expected a role for Turkey in Syria.

Witnesses said a brawl broke out after Erdogan's bodyguards attacked demonstrators who were carrying Kurdish PYD party flags.

The State Department condemned the attack Wednesday, and police in the nation's capital said they were working to identify the assailants, some of whom were armed. "To send a clear message that these acts of violence will not be tolerated, I ask that you immediately look into this matter and bring all appropriate criminal charges before these individuals leave the United States". During an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" talk show, McCain said that "we should throw their ambassador the hell out of the United States of America".

"The demonstrators began aggressively provoking Turkish-American citizens who had peacefully assembled to greet the President".

In an interview with Turkish broadcaster NTV, the foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, accused the USA envoy, Brett McGurk, of "providing support" for the PKK and the Syrian force, known as the YPG. "Turkish Ambassador should be kicked out of country".

Turkey launched its Euphrates Shield operation inside Syria a year ago, backing Syrian rebels with tanks, air strikes and special forces to sweep Islamic State from its southern border and stop the advance of the Syrian Kurdish YPG, which Ankara regards as a terrorist organization. The Turkish-Americans responded in self-defense and one of them was seriously injured.
