The world is still in shock and we are left speechless with the news that more than 100 people have lost their lives and more than 400 people have been injured at the worst terrorist attack in Turkey’s history on Saturday evening (Australian Time).
The bloodthirsty double suicide bombing targeted the innocent people at a peace rally in Turkey’s capital, Ankara. After the first blast the second suicide bomber targeted the people running from the scene.
As the Australian Turkish community we are shocked and shaken deeply, and horrified by the brutality of this savage act of terrorism. Terrorism does not have any religion or race. We condemn the acts of terrorism in all forms and where ever that is.
We extend our sympathies to the families who lost their loved ones and thank the community leaders and the politicians, especially Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and the Australian Government, who expressed their condolences to our community and the people of Turkey.
