A protest against Turkish Armed Forces and groups belonging to the Free Syrian Army was held in al-Bab, Syria, on Saturday.

Protestors were carrying pictures of Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II who conquered Constantinople in 1453.

According to media outlet Dihaber, the protest was directed against the presence of Turkish forces and Free Syrian Army groups in Northern Syria following the Euphrates Shield Operation that ended on 29 March 2017.

Dihaber reported that the crowd chanted slogans against the destruction of houses and demanded an “end to the occupation,” calling on Erdogan to hear them.
