Save Afrin: Protesters hit the streets of Beirut against Turkish offensive

Lebanese-Kurds hold banners, Kurdish flags and flags of the Kurdish People’s Protection (YPG) unit during a demonstration in front of the US embassy in Aaoukar, north of Beirut, to protest against the ongoing Turkish offensive in the Syrian-Kurdish enclave of Afrin on February 5, 2018.
The Turkish offensive started Saturday and has heightened tensions in the already complicated Syrian conflict, threatening to further strain ties between NATO allies Turkey and the United States.
