Breaking news brings us horrid news from Turkey. Russia’s ambassador to Turkey was shot and killed Monday evening while speaking at an art exhibition in the capital. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, maria Zakharova shared this information with the world on Russian state television.
The Ambassador was shot ‘multiple times’ by a suspect that was a heavily armed assailant just as the ambassador was delivering a speech at the opening ceremony of a photo exhibit. There just so happen to be an Associated Press photographer there at the scene of the shooting who reported that the attacker was wearing a suit and was heard shouting loudly the phrase “Allahu Akhbar” while he was firing the gun, which he fired at least 8 times.
That’s not all he was heard shouting however, he also shouted “Don’t forget Aleppo! Don’t forget Syria!” and this was shouted in the Turkish language. He then shouted “Stand back! Stand back! Only death will take me out of here. Anyone who has a role in this oppression will die one by one!”
While the shooter was terrorizing the people in attendance with his shouting and shooting, he also smashed several of the photos hung for the exhibition. His actions caused a total panic and people scattered to run for cover.
Then special forces entered and did what they do to neutralize the situation.
This is what we have learned so far about the exchange in dialogue that took place through updates:
Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
*Some Quranic gibberish*
Don’t forget the Aleppo!
Don’t forget the Syria!
As long as our land is not safe,you will not know what safety is.
Back off! Back off!
Only death can get me out of here.
Whoever has a share in this cruelty will pay for it.
This is developing news, stay tuned for updates.
