Breaking news: Terror attack as 'suicide bomber' explodes in Turkish city near Syrian border

A suicide bomber has blown himself near targets in the Turkish city of Iskenderun near the Syrian border.

Turkish media outlets and authorities have said that no one was killed by the bomber who was targeting a street in the city which is in the province of Hatay,

Hatay Governor Rahmi Doğan said in a tweet that no casualties have been reported so far.

The bomb exploded after police tried to detain two PKK members when one of them detonated himself, Doğan said.

The PKK (The Kurdistan Workers’ Party) has been operating as a terrorist organisation since 1974 in a bid for independence of the Kurdistan region, of which a part Turkey surmises over.

The explosion came days after the U.S. Embassy in Turkey issued a security alert, saying it received reports of a possible attack on Americans and other foreigners, and urged American citizens and westerners to exercise caution.

The Islamic State have also been responsible for attacks in Turkey as the Turkish have troops fighting them in Syria.  Global247News Twitter
