Nine people ended up in the hospital Tuesday after a melee near the embassy in Washington, D.C., that reportedly involved an attack by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's own security detail on peaceful protesters.

"We are communicating our concern to the Turkish government in the strongest possible terms", State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement on Wednesday.

United States expresses concern in "strongest possible terms" after violence erupted outside the Turkish embassy.

Eleven people were injured, including one police officer, in what law enforcement called a "brutal attack".

Turkey called Thursday for the removal of the USA diplomat coordinating the worldwide coalition fighting the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, accusing him of backing Syrian Kurdish militias.

The State Department summoned Turkish Ambassador Serdar Kilic following violence between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's guards and protesters in Washington, D.C., this week.

"After all, they violated American laws in the United States of America, so you can not have that happen in the United States of America".

"This isn't Turkey. This isn't a third-world country", McCain said on MSNBC.

Turkey's president told the United States it will not join any military operations that include Kurdish fighters in Syria. We do not do this here.

Using noise isolation techniques, Ferad says that the words "dalın diyor, servet abi dalın diyor" can be heard coming from the presidential guard just after Erdogan is seen speaking with his bodyguard.

The incident occurred after Erdogan arrived after a White House meeting with President Trump.

Video appears to show Erdogan's bodyguards violently breaking up a protest this week while Erdogan was visiting Washington.

State also confirmed that two members of the Turkish security team were detained after Tuesday's incident, and then released. "It also alleged that the protesters were affiliated with the separatist Kurdistan Workers' Party", or PKK, which has been designated as a terrorist organization by both the United States and Turkey, but a protest leader denied that claim. The two leaders touted strong ties between the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, but Erdogan emphasized his country will not accept Syrian Kurdish fighters in the region while stopping short of directly criticizing a USA decision to arm them.

Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino called Erdogan's security detail "irresponsible" following another violent incident a month later in Ecuador's capital city of Quito.

"Turkey and the USA will together run an active combat against the PKK". The State Department and politicians condemned the attack.

Turkey's embassy blamed the violence on demonstrators, saying they aggressively provoked Turkish-American citizens gathered to see Erdogan.
