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.
