 Ankara: Istanbul attack bore significant differences to previous ones

Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmuş said that the terror attack on a nightclub in Istanbul in the early hours of 2017 bore significant differences to previous attacks in Turkey and that it had been carried out to create divisions within Turkish society.

Kurtulmuş told reporters after a cabinet meeting in Ankara that it was clear that Turkey's military incursion into Syria had annoyed terror groups and those behind them, but said the offensive would continue until all threats to Turkey were removed, the Daily Sabah reports.
 
His remarks came after a New Year's nightclub attack in Istanbul's Ortaköy district that killed 39 people and left another 69 wounded, according to officials.
