WoW, this was one heck of an explosion - no evidence as of now- some are saying a car bomb; if this is a car bomb, I have 1.25 that says it is Isil. This is a sad day for Ankra-

Hoping for the best, one spokesperson tweeted "Terror Attack"


They quoted AKP, Turkey's ruling party, spokesman Ömer Çelik as posting on twitter: "Terror has attacked treacherously in Ankara. We curse this attack."




At least 18 people have been killed and 45 injured after an apparent car bomb rocked the Turkish capital of Ankara. Eyewitnesses reported hearing an explosion and seeing smoke rising from central Ankara.

It is thought the blast occurred just a few hundred metres away from the parliament and the military headquarters in the centre of the city.

Videos and images posted on social media showed large flames straight after the explosion and plumes of smokes rising into the sky, said to be over downtown Eskisehir Avenue.

I'm waiting for Turkey to blame the Kurds for this attack, they're itching to move in on the Kurds in Syria and just like 9/11 was the excuse to go into Iraq, I'm wondering if this will be the excuse to go after the Kurds

I'm with you on this one. They're been wanting to go after the Kurds for ages.

At least 18 killed in huge explosion in car bomb attack in Ankara


Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said the authorities have received information about the blast and were looking into it. Davutoğlu was scheduled to depart for Brussels for a visit later this evening but he canceled the trip and headed to the presidential palace to attend a last-minute security summit. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan chaired the meeting which was attended by the top commanders and senior government officials.


Not looking good at all

There has been no claim of responsibility yet, however Turkish officials said they suspect that this was a Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) attack. Anonymous security sources in Turkey's mainly Kurdish southeast told Reuters they believed Islamic State militants (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) were behind the bombing.


Checkmate

Either way I don't believe Turkey will let this lie and won't do some kind of retaliatory action within Syrian borders either attacking Kurds or ISIS or both

The situation is very complex . PKK is a terrorist org. but the behavior of turkish govt. towards kurdish minorities was/is/continues to be little different than what happened today .

PYD will now get bombed instead in syria be sure about that . and if they are looking for a provocation to enter syria , well thats it . they've got one .

Syrian army WILL indeed retaliate and get involved and things will go south-er in a matter of days .

If that happens, then we will know who's responsible for this attack. Turkey. If not directly behind it, then indirectly for allowing it to happen.

Same as 9/11.

The timing is everything.

EDIT: so i just figured out i've said everything you did...my mistake..don't drink and post

Turkey blames Syrian Kurds for Ankara blast, they deny responsibility, point to ISIS

Well it's official, at the very least Turkey will continue to use their artillery to strike Kurdish targets within Syria and at worst they will move their troops inside Syria.

As surprising as sticking your hand in a fire and getting burned.
