The Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu commented on today's terrorist attack in the Turkish province of Van, where 47 people were injured.
According to the Turkish authorities, the main target of this terror attack were the deeply religious Kurds of the province:
“It was an attack against the values, the faith and against all our Kurdish brothers who are not the adherents of atheism or the Marxist-Leninist ideology of the Kurdistan Workers Party [PKK - Ed.]. PKK / PYD is a terrorist organization that still continues its atrocities against the Kurds in Syria, Iraq and Turkey. And the deeply religious Kurds who have to flee to Syria, suffer most of all,” the Turkish Foreign Minister said.
Although the PKK is trying to set itself up as an organization protecting the Kurds’ rights, they are in fact the biggest enemy of the Kurdish people and their values.
“Even in the holy days the insidious terror continues. They have no faith, no belief, no morality. Wherever the terrorists are, we will eliminate them. We will continue our struggle until we totally eradicate the Kurdish terrorists,” Cavusoglu said.
September 12, in the eastern Turkish province of Van, a loud explosion occurred between the buildings of the province administration and the Office of the ruling Justice and Development Party. The explosion resulted in 47 victims. The responsibility was given to Kurdish militants. The authorities imposed a ban on publication of any information concerning the terrorist attack.
