Turkish nationalists demonstrate against the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK) in Istanbul on September 8, 2015The leader of Turkey’s main pro-Kurdish party warned Wednesday the country was being dragged into a “civil war” following a wave of attacks on its offices by nationalists outraged by Kurdish rebel killings of dozens of security force members. Tensions have risen sharply in Turkey in the past few days, as the government presses a major military operation against Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militants, and the rebels hit back with daily attacks against the army and police.
