An apparent suicide attack, reportedly carried out by the HPG (People’s Defense Forces) military wing of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), is captured on CCTV at a gendarmerie station at the entrance to Bekirhan, Kozluk in the southeastern province of Batman, Turkey.
From the footage, you can see two Turkish troops walking out into the street in order to intercept the vehicle for a check. At the last second, the vehicle veers toward one of the troops and then detonates.
Of course Turkish media claimed that no troops were killed in the attack, but the footage showing a mangled corpse of one of the soldiers skidding hundreds of feet in pieces across the road says otherwise.
