US sailors ambushed: Attacking American soldiers 'a tradition' in Turkey, more to come


Three Americ sailors in civilian clothes were attacked on camera Wednesday in Istanbul by a Turkish nationalist youth group that threw balloons of red paint and barked slogans such as “Yankee go home!”

Around 20 members of the Turkish Youth Union, or Türkiye Gençlik Birliği, were captured on film participating in the ambush, which targeted a trio of sailors who had just disembarked from the USS Ross.

The sailors safely returned to the missile cruiser after the attack, but not before the demonstrators hurled insults and attempted to douse the Americans in paint meant to symbolize blood while calling the victims “murderers.”
