Turkish People Continue Protests against Patriot Missile Deployment
The protesters, who carried placards in condemnation of the Turkish government's demand for the deployment of the NATO Patriot missile systems, set the US and NATO's flags ablaze. The marchers from different NGOs and opposition parties reiterated that the main objective behind the deployment of the missiles is launching a strike on Iran and defending Israel's security. Also large crowds of the Turkish people staged a similar protest rally in Istanbul on Monday to voice their anger at the possible deployment of surface-to-air Patriot missiles along Turkey's border with Syria. The Turkish protesters chanted anti-US slogans during the rally organized by Turkey's Felicity Party in Kadikoy Square in the Asian section of Istanbul. Last month, Turkey officially requested the NATO to deploy Patriot systems along its border with Syria, claiming that the deployment would only be defensive and that it would not "support a no-fly zone or any offensive operation" in Syria.
