Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan released a statement following the bombing attacks which took place earlier on Saturday in the Turkish province of Hatay.
Erdoğan released new figures stating that there were now approximately 20 dead and 46 injured, and said that due to the heavy injuries of some, the death count may rise again.
"To find out who is responsible for these attacks in Hatay we will utilize all of our intelligence services in the area as the investigations continue. From here I want to send this message to all of my siblings in Reyhan. This process is a sensitive process. Especially since we started the solution process in our country, and this they could not digest, those who do not share our countries feelings of freedom and unfortunately do not share these vies could have engaged in these types of acts." stated Erdoğan from his location in Istanbul.
