Shots Fired At US Embassy In Turkish Capital

Shots Fired At US Embassy In Turkish Capital

An unidentified gunman fired six shots at the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, the Turkish capital, early Monday, striking a guard booth but causing no injuries at the embassy, which was closed at the time, the Ankara governor's office said in a statement.

Police were dispatched after the shooting about 5 a.m. and were searching for the auto.

The early morning attack coincided with a deepening row between the two countries over the trial of a US pastor in Turkey. It said one bullet hit a window but no one was hurt, and police were searching for the vehicle and suspects.

Presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin tweeted that it was "an attempt to create chaos".

The shooting came at a time when relations between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies have plummeted in one of the worst crises in decades after the detention of U.S. pastor Andrew Brunson on terror-related charges, sending the Turkish lira into free fall against the dollar.

This is always the way, but it is clear that defensively we suffered three goals but also we had chances to do more goals. Speaking after the win, Hazard said : "Everybody knows what I have said after the World Cup".

U.S. President Donald Trump has called for his immediate release. Gulen denies those allegations, and Washington has urged Turkey to present convincing evidence for any extradition proceeding to go forward. The Turkish Police has launched an investigation into the attack and its perpetrators.

Turkey and the USA also disagree over their military interventions in the Syria war, Ankara's plan to buy missile defense systems from Russian Federation and the U.S. conviction of a Turkish state bank executive on sanctions-busting charges in January.

'The attack aimed at our economy has no difference from an attack aimed at our call to prayer or flag, ' he said.

He said defiantly, "Those who think they can make Turkey give in with the foreign exchange rate. will soon see they are wrong".

The incident comes as tension between Turkey and the USA continues to boil. In 2008, three assailants and three Turkish police officers died in a shootout outside the Istanbul post.
