TURKEY: Medical Association Members Threatened with Violence - URGENT ACTION

Amnesty International, USA, Jan 29, 2018.

The Turkish Medical Association (TTB) and its prominent members have been subjected to threats of violence, following a statement they issued on 24 January, calling for an end to the ongoing military operation by the Turkish armed forces in Afrin, northern Syria. The TTB lodged a request with the Ankara Governorship to provide protection for its offices and members, but they have received no response.
