Investigations are ongoing into a recent disturbance at Turkey's Dublin Embassy by a group of PYD/PKK terrorist organization sympathizers, Irish police confirmed Thursday.

The group of up to 40 individuals carrying the terrorist group's rags, reportedly gathered around the embassy building at Raglan Road on Wednesday and tried to forcibly enter its garden but were prevented by the security guards.

"Gardai [Irish police] were called to an incident outside The Turkish Embassy situated at Raglan Road and Eglin Road, Dublin 4 on Wednesday the 24th of January 2018," Irish police told Anadolu Agency.

The statement added there were 30-40 people involved in the "protest" and "investigations into this matter are ongoing and no arrests have been made at this time".

The group left the scene after Irish police took security measures around the embassy building.

PYD/PKK is the Syrian offshoot of the PKK, which is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU.

The PKK has waged a terror campaign against Turkey for more than 30 years, leading to the deaths of more than 40,000 security forces and civilians.
