17.1.2020: The Şehit Soro Amed Revenge Unit have issued a written statement claiming responsibility for an IED attack on January 13th in the Bahçelievler district of Istanbul against a car carrying 2 MIT (National Intelligence Organization) personnel. As a result of the attack, the 2 MIT personnel were seriously wounded:
“On January 13th, members of the Şehit Soro Amed Revenge Unit carried out an action with an improvised explosive device against 2 MIT employees in the Bahçelievler district of Istanbul. Our unit members targeted the 2 MIT personnel while they were in their vehicle. As a result of our action, the 2 MIT personnel were seriously injured and their vehicle was damaged.
The AKP-MHP government tried to cover up the truth about the attack by reporting the lie that it was an accident caused by the vehicle’s LPG tube exploding.
All MIT elements in Turkey and Kurdistan should be aware that we will continue our actions against all collaborators who work for them.”
