Who Was Behind The Ankara Car Bomb Attack? Remains a mystery, but Turkish authorities pointing their finger at YPG and insist on their involvement alongside PKK on the latest incident.
At the times like this and the repression on the free media is hard to find all the facts, and after bringing the public anger against Kurdish minority to the boiling point is even harder for Kurdish Media to stand up for themselves.
Recent attack in Ankara helps Turkish authorities to push against Syrian Kurdish YPG militia. Turkish Government which has long history with Kurdish workers Party (PKK) after recent attacks on YPG was condemn by western countries but authorities in Turkey claimed YPG militia, working with insurgents from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) therefore they had to attack YPG in Syria in order to stop PKK to get support from them.
Although no one has claimed responsibility for the recent attack in Ankara, but Turkey claims the bomber was killed in the attack but they have arrested 12 suspect related to the car bomb attack.
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Thursday that the perpetrator of the Ankara car bombing that killed 28 people is a member of the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, working with insurgents from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).
In a live televised speech, Davutoglu said the bombing showed that the Syrian Kurdish YPG is a terrorist organization and that Turkey would retaliate.
Perhaps now after recent car bomb, Turkish government is looking to get more sympathetic support from its allies in NATO when attacking YPG in Syria.
Turkey speaks up and accuses west to have double standard, when it comes to fight back and tackle terrorism.
Erdogan claims the recent killing in Turkey it wasn’t to fight back with Kurdish people but to fight with terrorist group PKK.
Furthermore he claims to stop PKK to gain support they should destroy YPG.
In an apparent reference to the United States, he added that Turkey expects cooperation from its allies against the group. But Washington has worked closely with the Kurdish YPG in the fight against the Islamic State group in Syria. The US also lists the PKK as a terrorist group.
“It has been claimed that this attack was carried out by members of the PKK terrorist organization in cooperation with a YPG member who infiltrated [Turkey] from Syria,” Davutoglu told reporters in Ankara, confirming the deceased bomber was a Syrian national named Salih Necar and adding that nine people had been detained following the attack.

However, the head of the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party on Thursday denied that the group’s armed wing was involved in the deadly bombing.
Davutoglu also said that senior members of the PKK had been killed in air strikes on their camps in northern Iraq launched overnight.
In all, between 60 and 70 Kurdish fighters were killed overnight in the air raids, according to the Turkish prime minister.
Meanwhile, a bomb detonated by remote control killed seven Turkish security force members travelling in a military vehicle in southeast Turkey on Thursday, security sources said, a day after the car bomb attack in Ankara.
In separate statements Head of western countries and even Iran and Russia called the bombing in Ankara an “odious attack” and expressed “support and solidarity with the Turkish authorities and the Turkish people”. Now Turkey got the green light in its mind to carry more attack on YPG.
