Turkish clerics condemn terror
'Terror is not a way of claiming one's rights,' Union of Scholars in Turkey says
A Turkish religious union on Wednesday condemned Sunday’s terror attack in Ankara.
“Terror is not a way of claiming one’s rights,” the Union of Scholars in Turkey said in a statement on social media.
“No matter where it comes from, it is inhuman and unfair... The victims of the terror are innocent people.”
The union added: “Islam bans the killing of women, children, the elderly and those who are busy with religious duties even in war.”
The car bomb attack in Ankara’s central Kizilay neighborhood Sunday evening killed 37 people. The bomber has been identified as PKK terrorist Seher Cagla Demir, 24.
