“No longer possible to distinguish ISIS members from the Turkish intelligence agents.”
Blast kills at least 28 people
SURUC – The Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in a statement blamed the recent suicide attack in Suruc on the Turkish government.The KCK, the executive council of the PKK, accused the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) of creating the Islamic State threat in Syria and Turkey, and that it was ‘no longer possible to distinguish ISIS members from the Turkish intelligence agents’.
According to the PKK the AKP government supports ISIS in order to undermine the Syrian Kurds in Syria. “As a result of this policy, the border between Turkey and Syria became a haven for ISIS and gangs from all over the world used this border for logistical and mobilization purposes,” the PKK said.
“It is obvious that responsibility for this massacre is of the Turkish state that unrestrainedly commits massacres on the basis of animosity towards Kurds,” the PKK added.
The PKK finally called on the Kurds and democratic powers to enhance the struggle against the AKP government.
Selahattin Demirtaş, co-chair of the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) called on Kurds on Monday to provide for their own security and also blamed the Turkish government for the attacks.
The Kurdish leader called on people to protest the massacre in Turkey everywhere.
At least 28 civilians were killed in suicide attack in the town of Suruc on Monday morning.
Turkish officials suggest the attack was carried out by the Islamic state.
Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has condemned the bombing.
Deputy Prime Minister Yalçın Akdoğan condemned the “despicable” incident on Twitter, saying such terrorist attacks on Turkey’s integrity and peace would never reach their goal, the Daily Sabah reported.
