0

Turkey – Two explosions occurred at a peace rally in Ankara today where a couple thousand people had gathered. The two massive explosions took place within the crowd around 10.05, just before they were to begin a march.

As more reports of death are coming through from Ankara in the wake of the twin blasts that hit demonstrators for peace, HDP Crisis Desk has announced that 128 people have lost their lives and 516 people have been wounded in the bloody attack.

According to HDP 52 people were killed at the blast scene. Unfortunately, these numbers may still change, we will update as information becomes available.

The peace rally was held with the call of Confederation of Progressive Trade Unions (DİSK) Confederation of Public Laborer’s Unions (KESK), The Union of Turkish Engineers and Architects (TMMOB) and Turkish Medical Association (TTB).

Pro-Kurdish HDP co-chair Selahattin Demirtaş spoke to reporters in İstanbul:

“We are witnessing a huge massacre. An atrocious and barbarian attack was carried out. It is identical and a continuation of the Diyarbakır and Suruç [attacks]. The death toll is heavy,” he told reporters.

Two consecutive explosions occurred at the back near the HDP procession right before thousands were mobilized to march. Police arrived before ambulances and attacked the people with tear gas.

“Even if we don’t know who detonated the bomb, we know who is blocking ambulances and sprayed them with gas.”

Turkish Medical Association, Türk Tabipleri Birliği (TTB), denounced that they were initially unable to attend to the injured due to interference and tear gas thrown by riot police. Doctors failed to reach the scene because of a pepper gas attack and very few ambulances could enter the blast area due to heavy police presence blocking the way.

Video: Police block path of ambulances until people beat them out of the way.
