VIDEO: American soldiers ATTACKED in Istanbul by Turkish protesters

This just happened today:

HURRIYET – A group of Turkish nationalist students attacked NATO soldiers in the touristic Eminönü district of Istanbul, putting sacks over their heads and throwing dye on them Nov. 12.

Members of the nationalist Turkish Youth Union (TGB) followed three NATO soldiers, who were thought to be U.S. citizens, as they exited the USS ROSS, which is currently docked on the coast of the Sarayburnu neighborhood of Eminönü for four days after returning from a NATO exercise in the Black Sea.

The TGB members shouted slogans “Yankee Go Home,” “Damn American Imperialism” and threw red dye on the soldiers while also putting sacks over their heads. The alleged U.S. soldiers in civilian clothing escaped by running away.

“You declared that you are a member of the U.S. army. We define you as murderers. We want you to leave our land,” a man is heard shouting at the soldier in the video released by the group.

“We are using our right to protest you,” the protester also shouted.
