YPG/PKK supporters attacked a German citizen of Turkish origin with a knife in Ludenscheid city of Germany on Wednesday.
The 50-year-old citizen was severely injured after being stabbed, and taken under treatment at a nearby hospital, a spokesman for the police said in a statement.
The incident occurred during a a protest organized by the YPG/PKK terrorist organization supporters against Turkey’s ongoing Operation Peace Spring in northern Syria.
The German police said the incident was still under investigation.
Turkey on Oct. 9 launched Operation Peace Spring in northern Syria to secure its borders by eliminating terrorist elements and to ensure the safe return of Syrian refugees and Syria’s territorial integrity.
Ankara wants to clear east of the Euphrates River of the terrorist PKK and its Syrian offshoot, the YPG.
At least 15 people were injured in 17 attacks in Germany since Operation Peace Spring in northern Syria began.
Turkey sent a diplomatic note to Germany expressing concern over rising attacks by YPG/PKK terror group supporters on Turkish representatives, organizations and community in the country, Ankara’s ambassador said Wednesday.
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.
