A senior lawmaker said Turkey has been playing with fire in the Middle East, warning that the continuation of policies benefiting Israel will backfire on Ankara. “Turkey is a Muslim country and our neighbor, and we are interested in sustainable security in Turkey because it will be beneficial to Turkey and Turkey’s neighbors,” Chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Friday, Press TV reported.  He added that Turkey has been following the policy of playing with fire in the region, nurturing terrorists and providing them with weapons. Boroujerdi’s comments came after at least 28 people lost their lives when a car laden with explosives detonated on Wednesday next to military buses as they waited at traffic lights on Ankara’s Inonu Boulevard.  On Friday, a Kurdish militant group once linked to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party claimed the Ankara blast. The Kurdistan Freedom Hawks (TAK) said in a statement on its website that the attack was in response to the policies of the administration of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. TAK vowed to continue its assaults.
