On Oct. 25, PKK supporters pelted the family’s car with stones after noticing a Turkish flag on their vehicle. The family, including their infant child, was on their way home from a demonstration held in support of Turkey’s operation in northern Syria.
Norwegian police used tear gas to disperse the attackers and two suspects were arrested.
Members of several Turkish civil society organizations gathered on Oct. 25 in front of Turkey’s embassy in Oslo in a show of support for Operation Peace Spring in Syria, with PKK sympathizers attacking participants as they returned home.
