    According to this claim, 270 police officers were gathered in such a tight proximity that they were killed or injured by a single truck bomb attack. Not believable.

      You don’t need to be close to a bomb to kill you its not the explosion that kills but the shrapnel and air caused by it the OKC bombing killed 200 and injured about 800 or more but the bomb was placed in the front of a bulding and people where deafend blocks away so yeah

    Kurdish news sites are known for making up fake news and exaggerating real news to fit into their political agenda. They’re not a reliable source of information.

    Where are the photos of all the dead?

  • I do not feel sorry for the Islamist-Turkish military who support the Dictator of Turkey.
    But I feel sorry for the civilians killed by the Kurdish-extremist.
