A car bomb blast has targeted a police station in the Southeastern city of Mardin on Wednesday killing at least 3 people. Prime minister Binali Yildirim has blamed the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) for the deadly attack. 

This was the second attack on police stations within two days. On Tuesday (7 June) a huge car bomb targeted a police station in the metropolitan city of Istanbul Killing at least 11 people and injuring many others.

Turkey has been on high alert after a series of bombings across the country last year. Turkish government blames PKK, an outlawed militant group operating mostly in the Southeas of the country.

Turkish security forces have been engaged in a massive offensive in a bid to cleanse cities and towns off PKK in the majority Kurdish Southeast.

Ankara has come under attack from several human rights organizations for it’s use of excessive force which many think has worsened the situation.
