The two perpetrators of an attack on the Turkish capital of Ankara that wounded two police officers earlier this month likely travelled from Syria by motorized paraglider, Agence France-Presse reported, citing the interior minister on Thursday.
The two suspects died in the attack on the Turkish Ministry of the Interior and a police building on Oct. 1.
One detonated a bomb vest, while the other was shot dead by police.
“The perpetrators of the attack in Ankara very probably came from Syria with a motorized paraglider,” Interior Minister Ali Yerlikaya told journalists in İstanbul.
“We have not yet been able to find the paraglider. We are working to ensure the safety of low-altitude flights,” he added, without giving further details.
The attack, for which the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) claimed responsibility, triggered a wave of retaliatory Turkish airstrikes in northern Syria and Iraq, where the PKK has bases.
