Hundreds of protesters took to the streets of Barcelona on Thursday to protest Turkey’s ongoing military operation in northeastern Syria.
Waving the Kurdish flag and chanting, the demonstrators marched through the capital of Catalonia in support to the Kurds.
“There are thousands of people being displaced today. As we speak, there are bombings happening by the Turkish military, children are being killed, and it’s all under the facade of going towards terrorism,” said a Kurdish protester.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the beginning of the military operation, dubbed ‘Operation Peace Spring’, on Wednesday to create a ‘safe zone’ cleared of US-backed Kurdish groups, which Ankara labels ‘terrorists’.
