Turks Protest US Troops at Incirlik Base ‘Exit NATO!’ [Video]

Protesters have gathered outside Incirlik Air Base in Turkey, where an American contingent is housed, to demand the authorities close the military facility and expel the troops in response to the US president’s decision to recognise the Armenian genocide last weekend.

US President Joe Biden released a statement on 24 April in which he officially recognised the killings of 1.5 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire as genocide. Such descriptions of those events have always been met with harsh criticism by respective Turkish governments, who reject the occurrence of genocide.
