Sympathizers of the PKK terrorist organization attacked on Friday the vehicle of a local Turkish family with a baby in Norway’s capital Oslo.
Footage showed the PKK supporters’ attack with stones on the family who were on their way back from a demonstration held in support of Turkey’s operation in northern Syria.
In an attempt to stop the attack, Norwegian police used tear gas to disperse the PKK supporters from around the Turkish families’ car.
Two suspects were arrested, police later announced.
Multiple Turkish civil society organizations gathered in front of Turkey’s embassy in Oslo in a show of support for Turkey’s Operation Peace Spring in Syria, with PKK sympathizers attacking participants as they returned home.
Launched on Oct. 9, Operation Peace Spring aims to eliminate the terrorist YPG/PKK elements from northern Syria east of the Euphrates River in order to secure Turkey’s borders, aid in the safe return of Syrian refugees, and ensure Syria’s territorial integrity.
On Oct 22, Ankara and Moscow reached a deal under which YPG/PKK terrorists will pull back 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) south of Turkey’s border with Syria within 150 hours, and security forces from Turkey and Russia will mount joint patrols there.
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. The YPG is the Syrian offshoot of the PKK.
