Shocking footage shows elderly Syrian woman kicked in face in ‘racist’ Turkey attack
A shocking video of an elderly Syrian woman being kicked in the face by a Turkish man in a “racist attack” in the southern city of Gaziantep has caused horror and outrage.
The video shows the woman, identified as 70-year-old Leila Mohammed, sitting on a bench as a number of men speaking Turkish approach her.
One of the men then kicks her in the face and she screams out, clutching her face and then covering her eye in pain.
The man in the video accuses Mohammed of attempting to kidnap a child before kicking her, although there was no evidence of this.
The Syrian website Orient News said that other people in the vicinity did not help or comfort Leila after she was kicked.
