Wednesday February 17, 2016 at night, a Suicide Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive Device (SVBIED) targeted military personnel travelling in a separate car.
28 people were killed and 61 others wounded in a huge explosion.
Turkey’s Prime Minister on Thursday 18, 2016 blamed the deadly Ankara bombing to be the works of Kurdish YPG militia based in Syria.
Ahmet Davutoglu said the fighters worked in co-operation with militants from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in Turkey were responsible for the Wednesday blast.
Turkish military launched airstrikes targeting members of the PKK, a Kurdish militant group hours after the Ankara blast.
Turkey has named the Ankara bomber as Salih Necar, a Syrian national and member of the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).
Turkey designates YPG as a terrorist group, although its allies, including the United States, back the YPG, in its fight against Islamic State (IS).
Interior Minister Efkan Ala said that 14 people have been detained in different provinces throughout the country in connection with the Ankara blast as reported by Anadolu news agency.
