Speaking at the meeting with the non-governmental organisations on Sunday, Turkey Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu stated that Turkish government prevented the country from leading into a chaos by figuring out ‘the game’ of militants group in advance.

“If we did not reply the revolt of militant group with simultaneous operations, they would descent the whole country into a chaos, disturbance in all our cities” Davutoglu said.

“We have seen ‘this game’ in advance” Davutoglu added.

Davutoglu claimed that the militant groups did not target the government, they targeted the nation at the same time, so this was not only a security concern.

Turkey has been a target of increasing terror attacks by militant groups such as ISIS and PKK since a suicide bombing, allegedly carried out by ISIS, in the Suruc district of the southeastern Sanliurfa province claimed 32 lives on July 20.  

The country has stepped up efforts against militant groups launching a campaign of air strikes against several positions used by PKK and ISIS militants in northern Iraq and Syria since July 24.

Davutoglu also accused Peoples’ Democratic Party officials of having ties with the outlawed PKK.

A Turkish court have launched an investigation on Saturday against the co-chairs and senior deputies of Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) over their statements about PKK and its Syrian affiliate PYD.

HDP leaders were accused of disseminating "terrorist propaganda” and taking “illegal actions directly linked to outlawed PKK.
