A car bomb exploded last week near a police station in Istanbul, Turkey. The police station is located near the Ataturk Airport. Local media outlets reported that at least 5 people were injured. Local media outlets reported that many military personnel and ambulances have been seen near the site of the explosion.

Turkish media outlets released pictures of ambulances driving towards the explosion site and military personnel spreading out in the area. In the last couple of months, Turkey suffered several terror attacks that were blamed on the PKK (Kurdistan Worker’s Party) or ISIS.

Around 50 people were killed and over 90 injured in a car bombing in the city of Gaziantep in August. The explosion happened during the middle of a large wedding and no organization claimed responsibility.
