Ankara, SANA – Residents of Samandag village in Iskenderun organized a protest condemning the massacres committed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist organization and the threat it poses to Turkey.
Turkish Republican People’s Party MP, Refik Eryilmaz, and President of Ehlibeyt Culture and Solidarity Foundation, Ali Yeral, joined hundreds of protesters who gathered at Cumhuriyet Park in the village, chanting slogans against the US and the Government of Justice and Development Party. Other people also gathered at Abdullah Comert square to express the same sentiments.
Issuing a press statement on behalf of Samandag and Dafneh village in Antioch, the protesters demanded that Turkish officials, particularly the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government, cease ignoring the Takfiris’ terrorist crimes in Syria and Iraq.
They also called for taking necessary procedures to prevent the threat of ISIS from reaching Turkey and to expel all terrorist groups spread across the Turkish borders.
Turkish media and political circles warned of the threat of the ISIS terrorist organization reaching to Adana, Diyarbakir, and Iskenderun, which confirms the validity of the warnings against the catastrophic repercussions of the AKP government’s policy in its support to this organization.
