Kurds living in Cyprus held a small protest and a series of meetings with government officials on Tuesday, in the aftermath of airstrikes by Turkey in Syria over the weekend.

The Kurdish Movement in Cyprus met the EU Commission in Cyprus Representative Myrto Zambarta and then House President Annita Demetriou.

Following their meetings, the Kurds then marched to the US Embassy and handed the ambassador a letter calling for the Turkish airstrikes in the autonomous administration of north and east Syria, Rojava, and Syria to stop.

They then walked to the Russian Embassy to condemn the Turkish attacks.
