Key Details:

10/10/2016 from Turkey

-10 soldiers and 8 civilians were killed at car bomb attack

-According to Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım, five tons of explosives were used in the attack.




There is no claims yet but it seems like PKK’s job. Firstly, they usually target military forces, police or civilians. Secondly, they usually carry attacks in Southeastern Anatolia Region. Hakkari is located very close to turkey-iraqi border. It is a mountainous area which makes it easier to hide. And their ‘kurdistan’ includes hakkari so this may be answer why they choose hakkari.
