Duvar English - A child was wounded in a mob attack on Syrians in the Altındağ district of the capital Ankara on Aug. 11. The Syrian child was taken to a hospital.
Hundreds of people have poured to the streets to attack the homes and businesses of Syrians in Altındağ's Önder and Battalgazi neighborhoods, revealing what the racist policies of politicians and fake social media rumors have come to.
Crowds chanting anti-Syrian and Islamist slogans were seen attacking Syrians' properties in various videos shared on social media on Aug. 11.
The attack came after 18-year-old Emirhan Yalçın was killed in a fight between the Syrians and locals in the same neighborhood earlier in the day. Two people have been arrested.
