Thousands of Kurds packed the streets of a border city in northern Iraq Saturday to protest a threatened Turkish incursion and to warn they would defend their territory. Turkey has threatened to cross the Iraqi border to try to wipe out Kurdish rebel bases, arguing it has the right to fight terrorism. The United States and Iraq oppose such unilateral action, fearing it could destabilize northern Iraq, the most stable part of the country. The protesters in Zakho waved the sunshine flag of Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region and accused Turkey of trying to foment unrest in the relatively peaceful autonomous region in northern Iraq. The protesters called on Turkey not to launch cross-border attacks against the rebels who operate from bases in the towering mountains inside Iraq.
