Numerous police and army detachments were pulled to the site of the explosion. In addition, additional armored vehicles were introduced into the city center.
It should be recalled that for several months, in fact, a civil war continues in the territory of the south-eastern provinces of Turkey, populated mainly by Kurds. The army and police of Turkey on the orders of President Erdogan are fighting against the Kurdish population, calling the process "anti-terrorist operation." In some cities of the region (in particular, in Cizre), the situation is close to a humanitarian catastrophe.
