The terrorists claimed responsibility for the attack in Ankara on February, 17 that killed 28 people, according to DW.

- The attack is a revenge for the military operations going on between the Turkish army and Kurds in the Turkish town of Cizre that killed dozens of people and forced thousands to flee, reports the DW.

According to DW, the group said in the past that its relationship with outlawed PKK terrorist group has been severed. At the same time some experts say, the relationship between them still exists.

According to journalists, earlier the terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack at Istanbul airport in December that killed one man.

February 17, Ankara was hit by a powerful blast that killed 28 people and left 61 wounded. The President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said 14 people suspected of organizing the attack were arrested.
