A terrorist attack on the Russian Ambassador to Turkey has taken place in a cold blooded ambush in the Turkish capital of Ankara. This latest brutal and horrific act of violence by an Islamic terrorist reaffirms our belief that ISIS and other radical Islamic groups need to be dealt with swiftly.
The Islamic extremist was a Turkish police officer. He was later tracked down and killed.
The attack on Russian envoy Andrey Karlov, who died of gunshot wounds received during an official event in the Turkish capital, Ankara, is qualified by Moscow as a “terrorist act,” the Foreign Ministry says.
“This is a tragic day in the history of Russian diplomacy. Today, Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov died after being shot at during a public event in Ankara,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said.
The topic of the killing of the Russian diplomat will be raised at the UN Security Council on Monday, ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.
The Russian Foreign Ministry will issue a statement later in the day, she added.
The shooter claimed he did it for Aleppo and shouted “Alahu Akbar!” immediately after the shooting.
The media will do what they always do and claim that this is a “disturbed” individual who acted alone. Deflecting the truth that this is Islamic terrorism is what the media does but we know what this is…
