Wednesday’s bomb attack was carried out by a Syrian national working with Kurdish militants, Turkish PM alleges, as military convoy hit in south-east
#Turkey has blamed Wednesday’s car bomb attack on a military convoy in Ankara on Kurds based in #Syria, as another explosion hit a convoy in the south-east.
Turkish PM Ahmet Davutoğlu alleged that Wednesday’s attack, which left 28 dead, was carried out by a Syrian Kurdish fighter with links to the People’s Protection Units (YPG), a Kurdish militia that has been supported by the US in the fight against Islamic State in northern Syria. The outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ party (PKK) assisted with the attack, Davutoğlu said.
