The death toll from the Ankara blast rose to 37 victims and the TAK Kurdistan Freedom Falcons group again claimed responsibility for the massacre having already claimed the very strange and beyond suspicious February attack.
Whenever a group such as the TAK pops up from obscurity and starts conducting devastating large scale terror attacks that clearly harm the Kurdish cause and bolster that of the Turkish Government the authenticity and even existence of the group must be questioned.

Ankara Bombing Leaves at least 27 dead and 75 wounded.
A massive explosion has struck the Turkish capital Ankara leaving at least 27 people dead. A bus interchange area was struck by what is being claimed to have been a car bomb.
This is the third major bombing attack to have struck the Turkish capital in the past six months and comes less than a month after a highly suspicious blast left 29 dead in the Ankara administrative central district.
The largest city in Turkey, Istanbul has also been targeted in recent months.
Whereas many of the previous attacks like the Suruc attack of July 2015, the Ankara blast of October and the February Ankara attack were rather obvious false flags designed to bolster Turkey’s flagging position in Syria in various ways the motive for the latest attack is not immediately clear. Turkey is the host to so many different terror outfits both supported and opposed by the Government that if this was an authentic attack, the list of suspects will be a very long one.
Hurriyet Daily News reports that the US Government warned it’s citizens of plots to attack the Government district of Ankara on March 11th.
“The U.S. Embassy informs U.S. citizens that there is information regarding a potential terrorist plot to attack Turkish government buildings and housing located in the Bahçelievler area of Ankara. U.S. citizens should avoid this area.”
There has not been any claim of responsibility at this time.
