The PKK does not claim responsibility for the explosion on Istiklal Street in Istanbul.

The armed Kurdish separatist Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) of Turkey, in a statement, denied involvement in the explosion in Istanbul yesterday, Sunday.

The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) denies any involvement in the explosion that took place in Istanbul yesterday, Sunday, killing six people, in which the Turkish authorities blamed it. “We are a movement that is fighting justly. It is known that we have nothing to do with this incident, that we do not attack civilians and reject actions directed against them,” the PKK said in a statement released by the PKK-affiliated news agency Firat .

“The Turkish government has gloomy plans.” The armed Kurdish separatist movement also accused the Turkish government of “dark plans” and “pointing to Kobani as a target.”

Turkish police said earlier today that the young Syrian woman, who was arrested last night, confessed to the attack and that she acted “on the orders of the PKK.” According to Turkish media, the woman received instructions in Kobani, in northeastern Syria. The city of Kobane is controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces, whose main composition is the YPG militia (People’s Protection Units), an ally of the PKK.

Independent experts believe that this attack unleashes the hands of Turkey in its actions against the Syrian PKK. And, it may well be inspired by the Turkish special services.
