      This is if the explosion occurred on board the tanker, located in the port, after which a fire broke out.

      And if the according to other data a fuel tank exploded in the port area, it looks like a sabotage against Turkey by the United States and Great Britain. with the involvement of Ukrainian Nazi performers.

          Most likely that is exactly what will happen.
          But without London and Washington with their henchman Kiev, the explosion definitely could not have happened here!

        Shaw, Petrov and Bashirov have nothing to do with it, guys out of business? It is necessary to urgently involve Anglo-Saxon specialists in the investigation.

        It is beneficial for Turkey that the Kurds were the perpetrators, if the Turks sound this action as a terrorist attack, they will find many traces of Kurdish groups. Erdogan really needs a ground operation in Syria, the Kurds are infringing on the interests of his family.

          This benefit is relative. Namely.
          The Kurds have 3 territorial-state enclaves; 1) in Turkey itself, 2) in the SAR and 3) in Iraq. The Kurds themselves are not united. In addition, the United States is also removing its gesheft from the Kurds
          In other words, Turkey opposes the United States with all its foreign servants - Great Britain and the EU countries.
          Therefore, it seems that Turkey will never be able to completely solve the problem with the Kurds. The Turks got bogged down in it and live with it for years. Both Washington and London benefit from this only.

            Of course, it will not work out, and you are right, all these Kurdish "enclaves" are warmed up by the United States in order for these territories to be in a stage of constant local chaos. These are weapons, control of gas and oil flows in part of these particular areas. But Erdogan, like the United States, under the guise of national interests, solves the personal problems of the family, another family will come instead of Biden, other "national interests" will arise in the United States, as well as in Turkey.

          As a rule, those who can and are able to commit sabotage are attracted to major sabotage.
          And Turkey, on the initiative of the United States and Great Britain, warmed up on its territory - due to its multi-vector stupidity - the leaders of the Nazis of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from Mariupol after exchanging them for Russian prisoners of war in Ukraine.
          So, in order to fulfill their national interests, the Anglo-Saxons do not even need to look for motivated saboteurs in Turkey itself. They are already there! From the same Ukraine.

          Turkey's traditional sitting on 2-3 chairs in politics does not end well.

      Perhaps so.

      For sabotage groups have already tried to blow up the Turkish Stream 2 times:
      - once in Turkey,
      - another time in Russia.
      After that, the pipe began to be heavily guarded from both sides.

      Both sabotage then managed to be prevented.

        I meant consequences. Tracking a small underwater drone is a difficult task. There is a thread for 900 km under water. If they want, they will blow it up without any problems.

            With modern technologies and materials, 2km is nothing laughing There are devices capable of diving more than 10 km, without consequences. This means that it is quite possible to make this if necessary.

    It looks like they are trying to point Erdogan to his true place. Explosions just don’t happen. This is not the first, there are no such coincidences. The “regional committee” believes that Erdogan is uncontrollable. revolution", this, presumably, is the beginning of it ...

    If this is indeed a terrorist attack, then the response of the Kurds to Turkish strikes. If for other reasons, then negligence and bungling. It would have been more interesting and fairer if it had crashed at the LNG acceptance terminal in Poland.
