Terrorists trying to destroy peace and security in Türkiye will never succeed, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday.

Erdogan’s remarks came after two police officers were injured when one of two terrorists blew himself up in front of the General Directorate of Security in the Turkish capital of Ankara in the morning.

In his opening speech to the new legislative year of the Parliament, Erdogan said today’s terrorist act, in which two criminals were neutralized thanks to the timely intervention of the police, was a “final flutters of terrorism.”

He added that the burden of instilling morale in terror groups with political calculations will be very heavy.

Two police officers suffered minor injuries when one of the two terrorists blew himself up in front of the General Security Department, while the other terrorist was “neutralized” by security forces at the entrance.

The injured police officers are still being treated and their injuries are not life-threatening, according to the Turkish interior minister.

Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office launched an investigation into the terrorist attack.

In relation to the attack, the Ankara Criminal Court of Peace has issued a media access and publication ban.
