PKK terror group supporters attack mosques in northwestern Germany

Sympathizers of the PKK-affiliated Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its armed wing the People’s Protection Units (YPG) attacked two mosques in Germany on Sunday night, sparking outrage among the country’s Turkish-Muslim community.

In the small northwestern town of Minden, the assailants hurled stones and bottles filled with paint at the Green Mosque, which is run by DITIB, a moderate Muslim organization founded by Turkish migrants.

Sabahattin Çiğdem, the head of the mosque association, condemned the attack and said they suspected that PKK sympathizers were behind it.

The name of the PKK’s Syrian offshoot the “PYD,” and slogans such as “Afrin” and “Revenge” were written on the walls of the mosque.
