Turkish PM says Syrian man carried out car bomb attack in Ankara

ANKARA- Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Thursday claimed that a Syrian national with links to Syrian Kurdish militia carried out the suicide bombing in Ankara that targeted military personnel and killed at least 28 people.

The prime minister while addressing a press conference said that Turkey’s Kurdish rebels collaborated with the Syrian man to carry out Wednesday’s attack.

While referring to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, he said, “The attack was carried out by the PKK together with a person who sneaked into Turkey from Syria.”

Meanwhile, Turkey’s military said its jets conducted cross-border raids against Kurdish rebel positions in northern Iraq, hours after the Ankara attack, striking at a group of about 60-70 rebels of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK.
