On Wednesday, at least 28 people were killed in a terror attack in Ankara. Local authorities blamed the PKK for the explosion and Erdoğan promised a harsh reaction. “Turkey will not hesitate to use its right to self-defense anytime, anywhere, and in all situations,” explained Erdoğan yesterday. 9 suspects have been arrested on the suspicions of being involved in the attack and Turkey attacked PKK targets in Northern Iraq.
Erdoğan postponed his visit to Azerbaijan due to the terror attack. In an announcement that was published shortly after the attack, the Turkish President stressed that “our determination to respond in kind against such attacks against our unity and future from outside and inside is even more strengthened through such attacks.”
