The explosion which targeted an army convoy was witnessed by an Ankara resident. Noury had only seconds before driven past the scene of the blast and he told a reporter what had happened.

“After 20 seconds, you know, it was nearly 300 meters distance when I left the explosion. And there was a very huge explosion and I saw a flash. Then you know, it was the very huge sound. I don’t know how, I hit my head to the sunroof. Everyone has a panic and that’s it. It was very shocking because I survived only [by] 20 seconds. Now I’m still shaking and I can’t believe that that’s happening in my area.”
