Turkish Military helping protestors with paramedics and face masks distribution
members of the military hospital suddenly began to distribute face masks to protesters. It was the second time that members of the military, although only indirectly and passively helped the protesters. In the night from Friday to Saturday soldiers had apparently paramedics gives access to injured near a barracks.
This raises the question as to whose side the military would actually stand if the conflict continues to escalate. The Turkish police is now regarded as political through and through penetrated by the ruling AKP party, especially where there are also many supporters of the Islamic Gulen Movement have the say. This may explain the extraordinary brutality of the police action against the protesters since Friday: Because if Erdogan should fall, it would certainly lead to a wave of purges in the ranks of the police.
