Pro-Hamas rioters attack American military base in Turkey

 November 6, 2023

Turkish police were forced to intervene this past weekend after a pro-Hamas mob threatened U.S. troops. 

According to Breitbart, the incident occurred on Sunday near the Incirlik Air Base in Adana, with authorities deploying tear gas.

The riot began as a protest against the United States and Israel which was organized by the IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation.

Footage retweeted by Fox News correspondent Lucas showed members of a crowd running as a police vehicle could be seen spraying gas.

Lucas pointed out that Incirlik Air Base is home to nuclear weapons, a fact that some military observers say needs to change.

Organizer says Turkish "police and soldiers would want to go to Gaza and fight"

Bulent Yildirim is head of the IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation, and Reuters reported that he counseled demonstrators against attacking authorities.

"Friends, it is wrong to throw rocks or do similar things because both the police and soldiers would want to go to Gaza and fight and they will go when the time comes," Yildirim was quoted as saying.

According to Stars and Stripes, the Pentagon's European Command was aware that the protest was scheduled to take place and devised "appropriate safety protocols."

"The safety and well-being of our airmen, families and community remain the forefront of our concerns. We urge all members to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities," a European Command spokeswoman said in a statement.

No arrests after pro-Palestine rioters deface White House, leave antisemitic graffiti

Turkey wasn't the only scene of violent protests, as an angry mob also appeared on Saturday evening outside of the White House.

Fox News reported on Monday that the White House remained "silent" about the disturbance and no arrests were made.

This was despite the fact that rioters "could be seen vandalizing the White House fence and wrenching at the gate as antisemitic graffiti was left on several buildings."
