Wednesday's dailies devote front-page coverage to Istanbul terror attack which claimed 11 lives

ISTANBUL (AA) – Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Wednesday's papers devoted their first pages to one main story: the Istanbul blast which martyred seven police officers and four civilians on Tuesday. The deadly attack also left 36 people wounded.

"Vicious attack," was MILLIYET's headline, which reported that the terror attack was against a police vehicle in Beyazit's Vezneciler area of the city's European side.

They were on their way to work when they were killed in a terrorist ambush, the paper wrote.

"Another vicious ambush," was HURRIYET's headline.

The paper said the TAK (Kurdistan Freedom Falcons), a PKK-affiliated terrorist group, claimed responsibility for the blast.

The group has also claimed responsibility for two major bomb attacks in the Turkish capital this year. One against military service vehicles martyred 29 people in February and an attack in March on a transport hub in central Ankara’s Kizilay district killed 35.

YENI SAFAK says it is the PKK which carried out "the massacre" on the second day of Ramadan.

A front-page photo shows damage to a 600-year-old mosque in the district – which hosts hundreds of people for Ramadan's evening prayers.

Nearby shops, vehicles and hotels were also damaged in the attack, HABER TURK reported.

According to the paper, four people were arrested for alleged links to the attack, while police are also checking over 1,800 mobile phones for any information.

"Forever," was VATAN's headline, quoting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan who said: "This fight [against terrorism] will continue forever."

"Turkey will never bend to the evil of terrorism that has benefited only from blood and pain,” he said.

Erdogan visited one of the hospitals in which several of the wounded civilians were admitted, the paper wrote. He stressed that the perpetrators of the attack “will pay the price for the blood they shed”.

SABAH focuses on Erdogan's vows to keep on fighting against terrorism.

"Those who believe that they could discipline and guide Turkey with terror acts are waiting in vain," the paper quoted him as saying.

He said those who are using terrorism to weaken Turkey "would be completely defeated in the end".

The paper also quoted Prime Minister Binali Yildirim who told reporters in Ankara:

"By planning to kill innocent citizens in the first days of Ramadan, the terrorist organizations have once again shown that they are the enemy of human values ... Turkey will never abandon its fight against terrorism."
