Kurdish residents of the city of Kobani in northern Syria held a protest at the border with Turkey. According to the Firat news agency, protesters have demanded Turkish military to stop construction of a fence at the border’s line. In response, Turkish troops have used tear-gas grenades and opened fire. As the news agency reported, a 17-year-old teenager was killed and 80 other Kurds were injured.

Representatives of Kobani’s Kurds consider that construction of the fence is illegal. They state that it would create additional difficulties in visiting relatives living on the Turkish side of the border for residents of the city. Moreover, they argue that Turkish troops invaded the 400 meter deep into Syrian territory.

Turkey began construction of the 4 meter high wall along its border with Syria to protect the country against penetration of members of terrorist groups and refugees from Syria. Turkish army units still continue to build concrete barriers that also should limit the terrorists’ possibility to use of weapons against Turkish territory.

  • They are terrorist by night, protesters by day. The world knows how these Arabs called Kurd’s work.
    They are always trying to conquer Iran. They are always trying to conquer Iraq. They are always trying to conquer Turkey. They are always trying to conquer Syria.
    They work with Israel.
    They work with Mi6.
    They work with CIA.
    Hmm. Build the wall and let them be just with themselves. Because leaches cannot survive off of just other leaches. No, they always need to attack themselves to a healthy host.
    That is why they flood into Europe and other places.
    Always looking for others to take care of them.
    People are sick and tired of Kurd’s shitting on everyone else in the world.
    If you are a kurd and read this. Take lesson, the world is getting sick and tired of you all thinking you are entitled to something. You are not. Star behaving once and for all, before the world unites against you.
