US State Department's spokesperson Victoria Nuland said they were saddened by the loss of life in the blast in Cilvegozu border gate near Turkey's southern Hatay province.

Nuland told reporters on Monday, "there is no justification on any side for attacking peaceful border posts, which is what this appears to have been."

Recalling that US Ambassador to Turkey Francis Ricciardone released a statement regarding the blast, Nuland said, "we're obviously saddened by the loss of life. There is no justification on any side for attacking peaceful border posts."

"We don't have any information yet on perpetrators. So, it's obviously concerning," she added.
