The United States said Sunday that it condemns in the strongest possible terms Saturday’s terrorist attack in Istanbul, Turkey.
Five people were reported to have been killed in the attack, with 35 wounded.
“Two American citizens were among those killed in this heinous attack,” NSC Spokesperson Ned Price confirmed, adding, “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and loved ones of those killed, and we wish a speedy recovery to those injured.”
Price noted that Turkey has once again suffered a horrific terrorist attack, “and we remain steadfast in our support for our NATO Ally and partner.”
“These repeated acts of terrorism in Turkey must come to an end,” Price said, adding, “We are in close touch with Turkish authorities and reaffirm our commitment to work together with Turkey to confront the evil of terrorism.”
