Sun Oct 16, 2016 16:13:59

Bomb explosions have occurred in the southern Turkish city of Gaziantep, killing three people and injuring eight others.

The explosions rang out through an area mostly populated by university students after a police raid targeted the militants hiding somewhere in the area.

The fatalities have been identified by hospital sources as police officers.

It is not clear yet what terror outfit were the militants affiliated to. Some reports say, however, that the raid had targeted a safe house used by militants belonging to the ISIS terror group.

On Friday, at least two rockets hit the southern Turkish holiday resort region of Antalya.

The rockets, fired by unknown assailants, struck a fish store and open ground near a resort town in the province of Antalya in southern Turkey on Friday.

Back in August, an attacker tied to Daesh struck a wedding in the city, killing 57 people, including 34 children.

Ankara is accused of providing logistical support and safe passage for Daesh terrorists since 2014, when they unleashed their campaign of terror against neighboring Iraq and Syria, Press TV reported.
