    Gaziantep governor Ali Yerlikaya said the explosion in the city centre was due to a 'terror attack', state-run news agency Anadolu reported.

    Turkish MP Mehmet Erdogan told CNN-Turk broadcaster that people had lost their lives in the blast.'There are people who lost their lives and we have initial information suggesting it was a bomb attack. We don't know numbers of injured,' said Erdogan, a ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) lawmaker for Gaziantep.

    It was not clear who was responsible for the explosion. Erdogan said there was a high possibility it was a suicide attack, which has led people to suspect ISIS, who are thought to have a presence in the city.

    Governor Ali Yerlikaya told Anadolu Agency the attack took place in Akdere neighborhood of Sahinbey district on the southern outskirts of the city. The lawmaker added that it was the type of attack that could have been launched by the Islamic State (IS) group or the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

    The Dogan news agency said the explosion, which went off at 7.40pm local time, had caused injuries and fatalities.A Turkish official confirmed an explosion in Gaziantep but would not say how many casualties there were.'The explosion took place during a wedding. According to initially available information, the ceremony was being held outdoors,' the official said.

    'The aim of terror is to scare the people but we will not allow this,' said Deputy Prime Mehmet Simsek, who also represents Gaziantep in the Turkish parliament.

    'It is barbaric to attack a wedding,' he told Turkish television. Just north of the Syrian border, Gaziantep has become a major hub for Syrians fleeing the civil war in their country's civil war. But as well as refugees and opposition activists, there have long been fears it was home to a significant jihadist presence.

    Turkey has already been hit by a bloody year of militant attacks in its two biggest cities that have left dozens dead. Kurdish militants have twice struck in Ankara in deadly attacks, while IS suicide bombers have twice killed tourists in the centre of Istanbul.

    All Islam countries have to pay the price for not foreseeing/realizing what a menace is Islamic terrorism and its serious impact on global society and economy. Muslims will be increasingly isolated if this menace is allowed to flourish. Oil is the only thing saving you guys. 30-40 years down the line, when they invent an alternative to oil, cannot imagine how the world will be for Muslims.

    This is how you get rewarded when you disobey your master, the big bully USA. Until now, as long as the relation between Turkey and Russia was strained, everyone was proposing theories of Russia being behind the terror strikes inside Turkey. Now that Russia and Turkey have patched their relationship, it's clear who's ass is on fire and who might have done this to send a message to Turkey. I've said it earlier and I will say it again, ISIS is nothing but the Muslim commandos of the US empire, doing their dirty work in furthering the empire's interests.

    HIllary is the mother of ISIS, Panetta is the biological father, Brennan the adoptive. Obama is the slave babysitter-cum-caretaker of demon baby ISIS. The Guru of ISIS is Erdogan.

    The slayer of ISIS will be Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin.

    Bombing at Wedding in Turkey Kills More Than 50

    Turkey is said to be buying OIL from ISIS and supporter as well.

    Yes, but there is not just one ISIS; it is just a collective metaphor for irregulars operating in that area. There are many factions there, Free Syrian Army, Free this army, Free that army, Al Nusra and what not. It's likely that all important global players have hired the services of at least one group to do their bidding in the region. USA, Russia, Turkey all have their own favorites. Buying oil from ISIS was actually buying oil from American faction of ISIS. There were some reports in RT that Dick Cheney has ownership over these so called 'ISIS refineries'.

    Well said. Turkey really comes out looking like an idiot in all of this. Erdogan is sending ultimatums to all countries claiming that Gulen has been building his network inside the country since a decade, but what it means is that it is a direct indictment of Turkish intel services since Gulen and Erdogan were allies just a couple of years back. It means that Erdogan is inadvertently admitting that Trukish intel was using Gulen schools as an intel conduit for 10 years. He has hit the axe on his own leg. He's literally saying "me and my friend were duping you for 10 years, now my friend has backstabbed me and I am going to expose the dirty tricks which we jointly used to employ in our joint venture". Sorry Erdogan, that doesn't wash away your sins and make you a saint.

    Erdogan is earning no brownie points by doing so publically and using official diplomatic channels. No one in India is deluded enough to think that Turkey, of all countries, is our well wisher, especially after they have led the OIC in making pro-separatist statements vis-a-vis Kashmir on multiple occasions, the most recent one being just a few days ago.

    I know alcohol is prohibited in Islam but I wont be surprised if someone finds proof that Muslim public leaders take a few pegs before making policy statements and decisions. Erdogan's statements towards Pakistan are particularly uniquely mushy. It sounds like a conversation between long lost lovers.

    Sad news. Sorry for the victims.

    I had predicted this long time back, that given Turkey was aiding ISIS and other Islamist groups, this was going to backfire onto Turkey as a Frankenstein.

    How is Erdogan going to tackle this now? Even the secularists in the Army have been purged.

    Good luck!
