The Guardian is reporting that the Turks have decided that the Syrian Kurds are responsible for Wednesday’s car bomb attack in Ankara:
Turkey has blamed Wednesday’s car bomb attack on a military convoy in Ankara on Kurds based in Syria, as another explosion hit a convoy in the south-east.
Turkish PM Ahmet Davutoğlu alleged that Wednesday’s attack, which left 28 dead, was carried out by a Syrian Kurdish fighter with links to the People’s Protection Units (YPG), a Kurdish militia that has been supported by the US in the fight against Islamic State in northern Syria. The outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ party (PKK) assisted with the attack, Davutoğlu said.
“We collected intelligence all night,” Davutoğlu told reporters in Ankara. “The perpetrators have been fully identified. The attack was carried out by YPG member Salih Necar, who came in from Syria.”
That the Kurds have been conducting a more or less successful campaign against DAESH, both in Iraq and Syria, and it is widely believed that the Turks are providing assistance to DAESH is probably just a coincidence.
