Shots Fired Near Iranian Embassy in Ankara

A dozen shots have reportedly been fired outside the Iranian Embassy in the Turkish capital Ankara. According to informed sources, the gunshots heard may have been fired by security forces at a checkpoint near the embassy building to warn a suspicious vehicle, IRIB reported on Monday. Earlier, the US issued a stern warning over the possibility of terror attacks or attempted kidnapping of foreign nationals in Istanbul. Just a few weeks ago, Turkey extended a nationwide state of emergency—introduced in the wake of the abortive coup in July—for another three months. Turkey imposed the state of emergency after it declared the end of a coup attempt by a group of military officers, which resulted in over 270 deaths.
