PM Davutoglu condemns attacks against HDP offices

KARAMAN: Simultaneous bomb blasts hit the offices of Turkey’s opposition pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) in two southern cities on Monday, wounding six people three weeks ahead of a parliamentary election.

Speaking during a public rally in the Central Anatolian province of Karaman, Davutoglu said he has been expecting such provocations to take place from the beginning.

“Some may make provocations. We were waiting such provocations to take place from the start…I am addressing to all [political] parties: We should take a stand against attacks whoever they have been made against,” Davutoglu said, adding his party won’t make concessions to any provocative attacks that may change direction and target the AK Party.
