The Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) a Kurdish Pro Freedom Organisation, whish is listed as a terrorist group by Turkey and its Western allies, claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing in the Turkish capital of Ankara on Sunday that injured two people.


The Kurdish Pro independence organization 'PKK' claimed responsibility for the suicide attack on the Turkish Parliament, saying that "two female members of the PKK Fedayeen group, Comrades Zojat Zalan and Erdal Shaheen, targeted the Turkish Interior Ministry in Ankara.

The organization attributed this attack to a former commander of the "Amar Brigade" Shaheed Iqtan Mos and said that his struggle against the enemy will continue until the independence of the Kurdish land.


A sacrificial action was carried out by a team from our "Amar Brigade," the PKK told to the media. 


The interior ministry said two attackers arrived in a commercial vehicle around 9:30 am (0630 GMT) in front of "the entrance gate of the General Directorate of Security of our Ministry of the Interior, and carried out a bomb attack."


"One of the attacker blew herself up. The other was killed by a bullet to the head before she had a chance to blow himself up," Interior Minister Ali Yerlikaya said in a press statement outside the ministry.


"Two of our police officers were lightly injured" in the exchange of fire, but their lives were not in danger, he added.


The PKK, which has waged an insurgency against the Turkish state since 1984, is blacklisted as a terror group by Ankara and its Western allies.
