Turkish Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu commented on the terrorist attack in the center of Istanbul, refusing to accept the condolences of the United States.
The explosion in Istanbul took place on November 13 on the Istiklal street in Istanbul and claimed lives of six people, at least 81 others were injured. The Istanbul Prosecutor General’s Office has qualified the explosion as a terrorist attack.
The Istanbul police announced that the terrorist attack was committed by a woman born in 1999, a Syrian citizen. According to the authorities, she was trained by detachments of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party. After the explosion, she ran away from Istiklal Street and got caught on surveillance cameras. The woman reportedly planned to flee to Greece, but was quickly captured by security forces.
“According to our estimates, the order came from Kobani, and the perpetrator of the attack came from Afrin . <…> The evidence available to investigators indicates that the explosion was organized by the Democratic Union Party (the military wing of the Kurdish Workers’ Party in Syria)”, Anadolu agency reported, citing Soylu.
The Turkish Interior Minister criticized the official condolences of the United States and noted that a response would follow in the near future.
“We do not accept condolences from the US Embassy. We are not betraying anyone, but we can no longer tolerate betrayal,” he said, claiming that the Turkish authorities “knew where the attack was coordinated from. … And the reaction to this message will be very clear. This will be seen in the near future, with the permission of Allah,” he said.
The US military continues to support Kurdish forces during the conflict in Syria. In June, Erdogan announced the launch of another anti-terrorist operation aimed at the destruction of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party formations. This is the fifth operation of the Turkish army in Syria since 2016. The US State Department criticized Ankara’s decision.

Oh Muslims. You and your bombs. This is why the world despises you and people like me take up arms and slaughter you like the pigs you are in your own places or worship!
Nazi pig, rot in hell. Muslims are good folks, not their fault we robbed their honelands for the last 200 years.
“Muslims are good people”
You mean ISIS and other Islamists who kill those who do not convert to Islam.
I support Islamists, Nazis and Kamikaze.
You need to convert to Islam-nazism or I will behead you with my plastic katana shaped as Hitler’s phallus .
You will never know who is Allah until you meet him. Don’t hide your horrible sense of the fear of death, you know who sent the Soviets to eternal sleeps in Islamic Emirate of Afganistan and you know who sent the Americans along with more than 18 strong country back to their shitholes lgbt alcoholic prostitutes country. All that while they were laughing while fighting and while you experienced the horror of death.
Are only illiterates who think they can meet a mythological god.
But after the influence of illiterates for generations, there are still many who live in that delusion.
Turkey will take revenge and is waiting for the permission of Allah.
When religion infiltrates a country’s government, you can expect a lot of weirdness in the name of fantasy god Allah.
The whole shitskin country of these kababs is all parazytes. None of them are capable of doing any productive work even if sent to labor caps.
They should be all clipped like that with bombs.
Go perish in ukraine you filthy slavic slugg
That’s a Black Woman with a New York sweater on. Whatever the embassy said, the terrorist attack in Istanbul is condemned.
Pointing out the obvious you like, pig skin demon. Some Yemeni and Syrian people are black as some Muslims and Middle Easterners are white.
I don’t trust the Turkish government. Period. They are still NATO members. They invaded northern Syria and Iraq and support rebels in Syria. They assassinated a Russian diplomat and tried to blame an obscure dissident group. They shot down a Russian aircraft in pursuit of “ISIS” terrorists. The last couple of major bombings in Turkey were done by “ISIS” and they just conveniently happened to target Kurds and leftest, two enemies of the Turkish state.
The irony of her coming out to address the shooting -not dressed accordingly in her business attire but in a sweat shirt with “New York” on the front of it?…
I wonder what would have happened to her had she decided to wear a 9/11 Truth tee shirt instead!?…
Biden / the US turns on their allies as the winds change.
Also, by the way, why are there no guards? When we take sombody into custody who just blew up a city street and put them in front of a camera, there are usually guards, and the suspect is usually not wearing ‘flip flops’ on their feet.
Are you talking about the picture they took?
Go to RT and they have clips when they took her in.
You know, there’s like this process….
I feel trouble because something doesn’t look right or something is happening soon anywhere in this world.
One can hope, Turkey will ditch Natostan soon? Perhaps just playing it till time monetary currency basket from Bricks + in place, because it’s coming; as Europe is done.
Turkey openly rejected US sympathy.
S/he looks americunt to me.
That turk bitch in the first photo by the turkish flags is one ugly motherfucker.
Another shithole country talking bullshit…don’t give a fuck on those stupid goat fuckers in Ankara…
americuntistan the worst shithole in galaxy except for lgbt that slurp mulatto sperm
That poor girl looks like she does not know, what is going on …
… ( has nothing to do with the attack ) …
I submissively serve any americunt especially their obese lgbt
Just before the bombing, it was alleged that she was caught on CCTV walking alongside a Mossad female agent. I wonder if this is a ploy to get Eddy to switch over to the Russian side, thus allowing Israel to have more traction in the ME? I think there are many actors at play here, which serves the greater geopolitical interest of US and Israel.
I suspect also, NATO would rather have Finland and Sweden in the club with the exclusion of Turkey, the terror attack was to provoke a reaction. A reminder for Turkey to toe the line or else?
Ist ja verständlich, Erdogan weiß das die USA ihn beseitigen will, weil er als NATO-Mitglied unzuverlässig ist und zu enge Beziehung zu Russland und Iran hat.
