ErdoIan’s aide posts first tweet after 15-month break

Yusuf Yerkel, an aide to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, on Sunday night posted his first tweet in 15 months, writing and”Hamdolsun!and” (Thank God!), in celebration of Sundayand’s snap election results that show the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) regained its majority in Parliament, winning around 49 percent of the vote.
After he was photographed kicking a protestor in Manisaand’s Soma district in the wake of the countryand’s biggest mining disaster that claimed the lives of 301 miners on May 13, 2014, Yerkel initially started to reduce the number of tweets he posted and then stopped completely on Aug. 12, 2014, after a tweet about photos of passports supposedly issued by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
Following the mining accident, then-Prime Minister Erdogan and a group of people from his party paid a visit to the district. During the visit, Yerkel was captured on camera delivering an enraged kick at a protestor who was being held down by two soldiers. Turkish media reported that according to witness accounts, special forces were interrogating the protestor after the latter kicked an official car belonging to the convoy of the prime minister. Yerkel, who saw the scene as he was preparing to take a seat in the car assigned to him, ran at the protester and kicked him three or four times.
