'Diyarbakir blast makes Turkey decisive on fighting against terrorism'

A deadly blast in the center of Turkey’s southeastern city of Diyarbakir has killed at least eight people. The Friday morning attack took place near a police station, where terrorist PKK's political wing the Peoples’ Democratic Party's (HDP) MPs were arrested hours earlier. The Turkish security forces detained two co-leaders of the HDP along with a number of other lawmakers from the party.

A deadly blast in the center of Turkey’s southeastern city of Diyarbakir has killed at least eight people. The Friday morning attack took place near a police station, where terrorist PKK's political wing the Peoples’ Democratic Party's (HDP) MPs were arrested hours earlier. The Turkish security forces detained two co-leaders of the HDP along with a number of other lawmakers from the party.


The latest terrorist attack in Diyarbakir seems to be “an answer to the arrest of the HDP lawmakers," Yunus Soner, the deputy chairman of the Turkish Patriotic Party told Press TV on Friday.


The attack makes Turkey pursue a “more decisive” fight against the HDP and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK)," he said, adding, "This will lead to further regional cooperation against these US-supported groups.”


He noted that the HDP has introduced itself “as the mediator between the Ankara government and the PKK,” but the party leaders and its members of parliament are actually chosen by the PKK.


Soner added that there is no violation of human rights in arresting the HDP figures, because “it is unacceptable that the political party and its members... participate in the funerals of the PKK terrorists and publicly making propaganda in favor of an armed group supported by the US.”


He ruled out the West’s hue and cry over Turkey’s crackdown on the Kurds, saying “I don’t see a general repression against the Kurdish population. This is an American talk.”


Soner also stressed that terrorist attacks in Turkey “will lead to further regional cooperation against these US-supported groups,” adding that unofficial talks between Ankara and Damascus have started to target Syria's Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), which is affiliated to the PKK.


The analyst further called for more cooperation between Tehran, Damascus, Baghdad and Ankara to fight the PKK and its affiliated groups, because, he said, the PKK terrorism “is a regional problem and its solution is in regional cooperation.”
