The Turkish Armed Forces are "duly responding to the treacherous attack" in Ağrı, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said on Twitter.
Davutoğlu said that he had been in contact with the Chief of Staff and Interior Ministry authorities.
"Have no doubt. The security of the elections, where our people will vote with their free will, will surely be provided," Davutoğlu said.The pro-Kurdish People's Democratic Party (HDP) co-chairman Selahattain Demirtaş also commented on the incident, saying it was "upsetting" and "worrisome" and it had to be investigated further. He said, if Turkey is embracing the reconciliation process, it is because the arms should be silenced, no one should die, and get injured.
