Erdogan rallies support for battle with Kurdish rebels


ISTANBUL: Thousands were expected to take part in an anti-terror demonstration in Istanbul Sunday, in a rally that will gauge the level of popular support for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s two-month-old offensive against Kurdish militants. The “one voice against terrorism” demonstration in Yenikapi Square, which will be addressed by Erdogan, is expected to dwarf a similar rally held in the capital Ankara Thursday in which some protesters railed against the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which the president has likened to the extremist Islamic State Group.
