BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued a stern warning on Sunday to people wanting to protest the Turkish Army’s military operation in the Afrin Canton of northwest Aleppo.

“Know that wherever you go out on the streets our security forces are on your necks,” Erdogan said, referring to members of the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), parliament’s second-largest opposition.

In addition to Erdogan’s warning, the Turkish police have blocked off one of the offices of the HDP in an effort to prevent them from holding a press conference.

The Turkish Army is currently on the offensive in Afrin, following the subsequent withdrawal of Russian troops from this region in northwest Aleppo.

I don’t think HPG will protest in streets…
Erdogan shouldn’t show his finger like this : with the time this finger spends in his a*s, his finger smells like a septic tank

No free speach or demonstration. What is left of democracy for HPG?

p.s. Turkey is the only dictatorship in the NATO. Sanitize it.
