State Department: Turkey - Public Announcement, June 16, 1995

Turkey-Public Announcement
June 16, 1995


Office of the Spokesman

For Immediate Release

(Dev Sol Anniversary Date)

The U.S. Embassy in Ankara, Turkey has issued a notice to remind U.S. citizens that July 12 is a significant anniversary date for the Dev Sol terrorist group in Turkey. On that day in 1991, 11 members of the Dev Sol terrorist organization were killed during a series of Turkish national police (TNP) operations conducted in Istanbul. On July 11, 1992, a rocket propelled device was launched at the American Consulate General in Istanbul. Responsibility for this incident was claimed by Dev Sol which said that the attack was in retaliation for the TNP operations of July 12, 1991, in which its members were killed. Also on July 12, 1992 there was an attempted car bombing of a private American citizen in Istanbul. No group or individual claimed responsibility for this attempted car bombing. At this time, there is no information which indicates that Americans or American interests will again be specifically targeted by Dev Sol on this date. However, the possibility still exists.
