On behalf of Secretary Carter and the entire Department of Defense, we wish to express our deepest condolences to our NATO ally Turkey after today’s bus bombing in Kayseri. The attack targeted off-duty soldiers, and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims and those injured. We remain united with Turkey in the ongoing fight against terrorism, and those responsible for this cowardly act should be held accountable.
