PKK claims responsibility for an attempted terrorist attack in Ankara: Reports

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 02 Oct 2023, 12:02 am

The Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), banned in Turkey, has claimed responsibility for an attempted terrorist attack near the interior ministry's building in Ankara, Turkish broadcaster A Haber reported on Sunday.

Earlier in the day, Turkish Interior Minister Ali Yerlikaya said that two terrorists had carried out an explosion near the ministry building in the Turkish capital, with one terrorist detonating himself and the other neutralized. Two police officers were wounded.

The armed conflict with the PKK began in Turkey in 1984 and resumed in 2015.

The organization, which seeks the creation of an independent Kurdish state, including on Turkish territory, has established bases in Iraqi and Syrian territories close to the Turkish border, where the Turkish armed forces have been targeting them on land and air strikes.
