‘Let our people know that we launched the total war against terrorist groups. As Mustafa Kemal Atatürk said during the war for independence: ‘it’s independence or death!’. These low people will get the response they deserve’, Turkish Prime Minister said.    

Earlier today, a blast near the police check point in Cizre, southeastern Turkey, killed nine policemen, injuring another 64, according to Reuters.

According to the report, a car bomb exploded in the town of Cizre in Sirnak province near the police headquarters. "The victims of the explosion were taken to the nearest hospitals", reads the message.

It is noted that the province of Sırnak is located on the border with Syria and Iraq, with a large proportion of the Kurds residing in the province.

Responsibility for the attack, allegedly, is carried by the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), involved in almost daily clashes in the region since July 2015.
