The residents of Istanbul asked the U.S. military personnel who had arrived in the country to leave Turkey, but appeals had no effect, then the Turkish citizens put a bag on the head of a U.S. sailor. The relevant footage was published on Twitter on Thursday, November 4.
In the video, you can see that the American soldier was dressed in a black jacket and jeans, with a backpack hanging on his back. However, in the streets of Istanbul, he was approached by unknown assailants who urged him to leave the country with other soldiers, calling them aggressors.
As a result, the Turkish citizens decided to put a bag over the US sailor’s head. The soldier, in turn, tried to escape.
Later, the men involved in the incident explained that this was their way of opposing the U.S. military in their country.
