German police use pepper spray to disperse protestors at Afrin rally

Turkey has long criticized Germany for not taking serious measures against the PKK, which uses the country as a platform for their fund-raising, recruitment, and propaganda activities.

Demonstrators protesting against the "Olive Branch" operation against the Kurdish-held enclave of Afrin were sprayed with pepper spray by the German police. Erdogan said Turkey sent troops to conflict zones when requested, but did not receive support in return.

"We were present all these places ..."

"Hey NATO where are you?" "We haven't received any positive response yet", Erdoğan added.

The group - which is designated as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the USA, and the European Union - maintains a military presence in northern Iraq near the Turkey-Iraq and Iran-Iraq borders. He also vowed to sweep Kurdish fighters from the length of the border.

"In the Afrin region, the real owners of the lands have started to come back", he said.
