Erdogan Supporters in Violent Clash with Protesters in Washington

Erdogan Supporters in Violent Clash with Protesters in Washington

Eventually Erdogan turns away and slowly walks into the embassy. Shouting is heard, and Erdogan's security staff was seen storming the protesters. They could see the protestors and their placards- and chose to "disperse them".

Activists planned the protest titled "Erdogan in Washington: A Rally Against Dictatorship" weeks before Erdogan's visit to Washington to meet with his U.S. counterpart.

"The unprovoked attack against peaceful demonstrators by the security detail of Turkish President Erdogan in the Nation's Capital which sent several demonstrators to the hospital is an event that can not be tolerated anywhere, particularly in the USA with its tradition of free speech and protection of peaceful demonstrations". The video shows one of the president's aides communicating with Erdogan, who is sat in the back of a black Mercedes sedan, before walking towards the demonstrators.

Close-up footage shared on social media showed Turkish officials dressed in suits beating and punching people in the crowd and, in at least one case, kicking out at a woman splayed on the ground.

Metropolitan Police Chief Peter Newsham said in a news conference on Wednesday that police had a good idea of most of the assailants' identities and were investigating with the Secret Service and State Department.

However, the State Department said "violence is never an appropriate response to free speech, and we support the rights of people everywhere to free expression and peaceful protest".

Witnesses described what happened at the scene. "Somebody told them to go and beat up on these peaceful demonstrators and I think it should have repercussions, including identifying these people and bringing charges against them".

The U.S. respects Turkish concerns about its "by, with, and through" approach to the Syrian Democratic Forces led by the YPG, and will continue consulting with Ankara as the focus on combating IS continues, Nauert said. "And I thought, 'okay I'm on the ground already, what is the objective to beat me?'" "We would just take the step".

The Anadolu Agency, a state-owned Turkish news service, reported that members of the president's security team were involved in the attack.

Maybe Mr. Trump should consider building a wall around the Turkish ambassador's home in Washington where the real trouble seems to be, not along the U.S.

Turkey is keen to join a future battle to recapture the de facto IS capital of Raqa in Syria, but only if Kurdish militia forces do not participate.

"This kind of thing cannot go un-responded to diplomatically", said McCain, suggesting that the U.S. sue the Turkish government if the bodyguards responsible for the violence can't be identified. "We call upon the Turkish government to apologize immediately for the involvement of any officials", said the statement.

In Turkey's vigorous but so far faltering attempts to shift US policy, the government has increasingly taken to blaming disagreements with the Trump administration over Syria on President Barack Obama and, specifically, holdovers from the Obama administration, including McGurk, who has served as envoy to the anti-Islamic State coalition since November 2015.

Sen. John McCain said the U.S. should toss the Turkish ambassador "the hell out" after a demonstration outside the envoy's home in Washington turned violent and several protesters were beaten bloody.

"This is the United States of America", McCain wrote.

"We told them ... we do not regard your cooperation with a terrorist group in Raqqa as healthy", Erdogan was cited as saying, but he said he expected a role for Turkey in Syria.
