ATA Alliance condemns the terrorist attacks in recent days which have targeted Turkish security personnel.

ATA Alliance conveys its heartfelt sympathies to the families and friends of dozens of soldiers and police officers who lost their lives during these barbaric attacks.

These men were sacrificed in the line of duty, defending and ensuring the security of the nation. The terrorists who commit these acts attack not only their direct victims, but the people and the Republic of Turkey. We pray that the victims of these vile acts rest in peace, and call for the perpetrators to be brought to justice.

These attacks once again show the brutality of the PKK terrorist organisation and its affiliates.

We note the recent campaign in Australia and elsewhere to have the PKK de-listed as a terrorist organisation, we trust that recent events serve to remind the Australian public why PKK is prescribed as a terrorist organisation by the Australian Government.
