Speaking to the press on Friday, Gaziantep Governor Erdal Ata stated that the number of people detained in connection with a car bombing in Gaziantep has risen to 13.
Ata added that the blast in Gaziantep on the second day of Eid al-Fitr turned the Muslim holiday into a period of bitterness with the death of nine civilians, including four children.
“Everybody should stand against such incidents and not be involved in them. Gaziantep is a city of peace. We have lived up until now in peace. Nobody can disturb our sense of unity. Those committing such assaults cannot be the friends of anybody living in Turkey,” Ata added.
