Today, international news agencies are disseminating cadres of Erdogan’s speech at the Institute of National Studies of Ecuador. It is in Ecuador that the Turkish president is on an official visit. During the speech Erdogan was giving from the podium, a group of students began shouting: “Killer!” The security service twisted the students (most of the participants were girls) and hurried to get them out of the hall. At this time, the hall applauded the activists. The protesters subsequently reported that they thus tried to protest against the military operation, which the army and police of Turkey, by order of Erdogan, are conducting in the regions inhabited by Turkish Kurds.
Earlier it was reported that during the special operation of the Turkish police in the south-east of Turkey, the number of civilian casualties exceeded 150 people. 80 of them died in the town of Cizre of the Sirnak province. Among the dead are women and children.
