ANKARA, Turkey — A 3-year-old child was killed by a car bomb that targeted the homes of judges and prosecutors in the mainly-Kurdish town of Viransehir, in Sanliurfa province, which borders Syria.

15 others were injured in the attack and were taken to the hospital. Their conditions are unknown at the time.

Sanliurfa governor Gungor Azim Tuna told state-run Anadolu Agency that a young man parked the explosives-laden vehicle near the lodgings and later detonated it with a remote-controlled device, according to AP. The attack killed the 3-year-old son of a court clerk, he said.

So far no group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Turkey has suffered a series of violent attacks since 2015, carried out either by the Islamic State group or by Kurdish militants who have led a three-decade old insurgency and resumed fighting in 2015 after a cease-fire collapsed.

The outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, has targeted police or government lodgings with car bombs in the past. The group is considered a terror organization by Turkey and its Western allies.

Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag condemned the attack on Twitter and said the government would not be deterred from its fight against terror groups.

“Our determined and forceful struggle will continue,” Bozdag wrote.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the family that lost their young child.

Tragic.

God Bless.
