Turkish President Erdogan Reaches Out to Ghent Student Assaulted by Kurdish Demonstrators in Brussels: “We Are Keeping an Eye on Your Situation”

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reached out to a 17-year-old student of Turkish origin who was attacked by pro-Kurdish demonstrators during a school outing in Ghent. The president called to check on the teenager’s condition and wished him a quick recovery.

The attack occurred when the two students of Turkish origin, observing Ramadan and not eating during the day, were approached by demonstrators who asked if they were Turkish. Upon confirming their Turkish identity, they were punched and injured. President Erdogan condemned the attackers as “immoral and despicable villains” and assured that authorities and the Turkish Embassy are following the situation closely.

The incident in Brussels follows recent clashes between supporters of the PKK, designated as a terrorist organization by the EU, and individuals of Turkish origin. These tensions have been heightened due to ongoing political unrest in Turkey and its impact on the European community. The attack serves as a reminder of the need for maintaining peace and dialogue between different communities in Europe.

Erdogan’s call to the victim shows a commitment to addressing such incidents and promoting harmony among diverse groups in Europe. The student’s father expressed gratitude for the president’s call and hopes for his son’s quick recovery.
