Kurdish militants attack popular resort
“I don't want to die here.” Russians almost became victims of a terrorist attack in Turkey
A couple from Russia vacationing in the resort of Mersin in southeastern Turkey, witnessed a terrorist attack that claimed several lives.
On Tuesday night, Kurdish militants attacked a police station. A suicide bomber blew up a car near the building, a fire started, and a shootout ensued. As a result of the attack, there are casualties on both sides.
The attack occurred around 23:00 local time, when most tourists had already dispersed to their homes. Only a few couples continued to walk around the resort at night.
The Russians posted a video of them falling to the ground and hiding behind a car at the first sound of gunshots. About 500 meters separated them from the place of the shootout.
The man retained a cold mind, took the couple a long distance and took cover in a safe place. The woman panicked and screamed loudly. “I don't want to die here!” – was one of her remarks.
The campers were not injured in the attack. But, by their own admission, they now need time to recover from the shock.
