The statement of Şentop, Speaker of GNAT is the following:
“I learned with deep sorrow that that many civilians, including two of our citizens, lost their lives in the terrorist attack in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia. I would like to express my condolences to the friendly Somali people and the relatives of our citizens who lost their lives.
The attack in Somalia is an urgent warning to show how hostile the terrorism is and an act against humanity. This painful event reveals once again the legitimate and examplary struggle that Turkey conducts against all forms of terrorism.
