Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s security guards attacked a group of people who gathered outside the Turkish embassy in the US capital to support HDP, YPG and PKK terror organizations.

Erdogan met with US President Donald Trump in a scheduled gathering on Tuesday. During his visit to the Turkish embassy in Washington DC after the meeting, his supporters clashed with another group who gathered outside the embassy building in order to support HDP, YPG and PKK terror organizations.

The protesting group held banners that read: “Freedom to Demirtas!” in a reference to Selahattin Demirtas, the leader of pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) who has been under arrest over terrorism charges since Nov 4, 2016.

Police intervened into the fighting between the two groups while a video recording posted on social media the same day revealed that Erdogan’s guards in suits were also involved, physically attacking the protesting group.

Nine people were injured with at least one of them in serious condition, according to US media outlets.
