Kurdish protesters clash with police at German airport and disrupt UK stations

At least seven suspects held in Turkey for PKK terror propaganda

It was the latest in a series of incidents police say may be linked to demonstrations by hundreds of people against Turkey's military operation in the northern Syrian region of Afrin aimed at sweeping the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia from the Turkish border.

Over the last 48 hours, Afrin city has reportedly been targeted by Turkish air raids, water has been cut off, and the internet severed.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened to "purge" Kurdish militia from the town of Afrin as his forces and allied Syrian rebels advanced to within a few kilometers.

"Hey NATO, with what has been going on in Syria, when are you going to come and be alongside us?"

In January the United Nations has said 15,000 people have been displaced from inside Afrin.

The YPG is regarded by Turkey as the Syrian affiliate of the the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US and European Union. NATO, Turkey is not a NATO country? "Where are you? You've invited NATO-member states to Afghanistan", Erdogan said.

YPG has been a key American ally in the fight against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Syria and the operation has raised tensions with Washington and European NATO powers. "Are we not a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member?" "As SYPG and JAS, we will launch a new group of human shields against the invasion of the Cizirê region and the Firat (Euphrates) region". The Turkish government views the YPG as a terror organization and the Syrian branch of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militant group.

The defeat of ISIS has been welcomed in many parts of Syria and Kurdish militia have staked their right to control the regions in East Syria which had a Kurdish majority population.

On Saturday, global activists and Kurdish communities in foreign countries marched and protested against what they called the Turkish aggression against Afrin and European arms trade with Turkey.

The calls have been dismissed by Turkish officials, who insist they are fighting against "terrorists", while Afrin was not explicitly mentioned in the resolution.
