Turkey: Revolutionary People’s Liberation Front (DHKP-C) marxist terrorist group claims attack on Istanbul US consulate
A radical Marxist group has claimed responsibility for a gun attack on the US consulate in Istanbul.
The Iranian-linked Revolutionary People’s Liberation Front (DHKP-C) said on its website that one of its female terrorists carried out the attack.
It named her as Hatice Asik and said she was later arrested and taken to hospital after being shot by police.
“Our struggle will continue until imperialism and its collaborators leave our country and every parcel of our homeland is cleared of US bases,” it said, praising Asik as “our honor.”
