Turkish premier says recent terrorist attacks show terrorist organization is still instrument

The Turkish prime minister said on Saturday that recent attacks of the terrorist organization indicated that it was still an instrument, Anadolu Agency reported.

Turkey's Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that recent terrorist attacks indicated that it was trying to prove that it was still an instrument that could be used by circles who had plots regarding Turkey.

"The terrorist organization, which has been so desperate and in a crisis due to recent intense initiatives, is resorting to terrorist attacks to prove that it still exists even though it knows that it will gain no result," Erdogan said in a statement aired on the web-site of his office.

Erdogan's remarks came after ten soldiers died and 16 others were wounded in a terrorist attack in Hakkari's Semdinli town. Eight of the terrorists were killed and 14 of them were injured in a terrorist attack on a military outpost in Semdinli, whereas two soldiers died and two others were wounded as they stepped on a land mine when following the terrorists who attacked on the military outpost. Twelve terrorists were rendered ineffective.

In the statement, Erdogan presented his condolences to the families of the dead soldiers, and quick recovery for the injured.

Erdogan said Turkey had witnessed the bloody and dirty intrigues of the terrorist organization for many times, and the terrorist organization could not achieve its bloody intentions, and could not be successful in any of those dirty intrigues that aimed to harm the peace and brotherhood of Turkish nation.

"Today, the terrorist organization is resorting to bloody attacks as the figure of bloody intrigues in order to sabotage the economic, social and democratic improvement process of Turkey, which has gained international importance," he said.

Erdogan said Turkey would maintain its development within unity and solidarity, and those who staged those heinous attacks would not achieve their dark intentions.

Those bloody attacks would not demoralize the security forces and would not harm their will, the peace and stability of the country and brotherhood and solidarity of the nation, he said.

Erdogan said the government would not slow down its democratic developments when carrying out an efficient fight against the terrorist organization, and would continue to give messages of peace in the country and the world.

Turkey would not be desperate and surrender by violence, Erdogan said.

Erdogan said the government would continue its multi-dimensional fight against terrorism, whereas security forces would go on with their fight against the terrorist organization.

In the statement, the prime minister called on every one to refrain from remarks, criticisms and comments that could demoralize the state, government, nation and security forces, and harm unity and solidarity.
