TAK Claims Responsibility For Suicide Attack in Bursa, Turkey

Stacy Adams

ttttThe Kurdistan Freedom Hawks (TAK) have taken responsibility for a suicide attack last week in the Turkish city of Bursa.

A female suicide bomber, named by TAK as Asya Glidağ, 23, blew herself up in the northwestern city on Wednesday, injuring 8 people. The only casualty was Glidağ herself.

In a statement on its website, TAK said that Glidağ detonated the explosives before reaching her intended target.

TAK, also known as the Kurdistan Freedom Falcons, is a splinter group of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). They have vowed to carry out attacks on Turkey’s tourist industry in retaliation for the Turkish authorities’ campaign against the Kurdish minority.

The attack hit a historic area of Bursa, popular with tourists.

Wednesday’s attack is the second suicide bombing carried out by TAK in the past month. Thirty-seven were killed in a suicide attack in Ankara on March 13.
