Explosives Used in Istanbul Attack ‘not ordinary,’ Says Turkish Deputy PM

mmThe explosives used in the attack on Istanbul over the weekend were “not ordinary ammunition,” Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said, adding that an investigation is underway to determine where the attackers acquired their explosives.

“The pothole (caused by the explosion) is very wide and deep,” Kurtulmus said, after a cabinet meeting on Monday, according to Hurriyet news.

“All kinds of technical investigations are being carried out to probe this, with the slightest details taken into consideration. It is understood that the ammunition used is not ordinary,” he added. “This is not made out of material that terrorist organizations buy from supermarkets or bazaars. It is given by some people.”

On Saturday night two bombs exploded in Istanbul’s Besiktas neighborhood, targeting police officers. At least 38 people were killed and another 155 wounded in the attack. The Kurdistan Freedom Falcons (TAK) group has claimed responsibility.

Kurtulmus said that Turkey has yet to determine who might have supplied such weapons to the attackers.

“If logistical, intelligence and weapon ammunition support is cut, none of these terrorist organizations would be able to survive for even a week,” he said. “This equipment hasn’t just been obtained by chance.”
