RIA News reports that the blast killed at least five people, injured around 36. Serious damage was caused to the building of the Diyarbakır provincial police station. Several urban buildings, located in the same quarter, almost completely destroyed.
At the moment, none of the groups has claimed responsibility for the attack. However, official Ankara, even before the beginning of the investigative process, stated that the attack was staged by representatives of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, banned in Turkish territory.
It should be recalled that in a number of provinces in Turkey, populated mainly by Kurds, Turkish security forces for several months in a row conduct a military operation using armored vehicles. During this time, more than a hundred members of the civilian population, including women and children, died.
