According to Turkish news reports, a car bomb exploded near Istanbul’s Besiktas sports just a day after ISIS warned that it is planning to carry out a massive terror attack. Many medical teams and security forces are at the scene.

Medical teams and security forces were rushed to Istanbul’s Besiktas sports stadium after two large explosions were reported this evening (Saturday). It appears that the target of the explosions was a nearby police bus. At least 20 people were injured. Most of the victims were on board the police vehicle.

Yesterday, ISIS warned that it is planning to carry out a massive terror attack in Turkey. Turkish authorities are investigating the possibility that these explosions were part of the murderous terrorist organization’s planned attack.

While some reports claim that a car bomb went off near the stadium, others claim that explosive devices were thrown at police officers from a passing vehicle.
