Thousands across Turkey protest Trump’s Jerusalem move


Thousands of people across Turkey took to the streets to protest U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, APA reports quoting Anadoolu Agency.

 

Several NGOs and civil society groups, including the Anatolian Youth Association (AGD) and Turkish Youth Foundation (TUGVA), gathered city centers in every corner of the country to protest the move.

 

Many NGOs led by the AGD Istanbul branch staged a demonstration at the U.S. Consulate General in Istanbul and chanted slogans against President Donald Trump and the U.S. and carried posters and banners supporting the Palestinians.

 

The TUGVA also organized another protest at Fatih Mosque in Istanbul as they called on Muslims to unite against the decision.

 

Another protest was held in Ankara in front of the U.S. Embassy building, where a statement was read stating the Palestinian crisis was a basic issue of all Muslims.

 

Similar protests were also held in almost every Turkish province, including Konya, Bursa, Antalya, Mugla, Manisa, Adana, Bartin, Karabuk, Samsun, Yozgat, Malatya, Gaziantep, Kahramanmaras, Sanliurfa, Sirnak and Diyarbakir.
