Turkey is sending two Turkish military ambulance aircraft to Iraq to evacuate close to 30 people wounded in a suicide attack in a town north of Baghdad and treat them in Turkish hospitals, the Foreign Ministry said Sunday. Saturday's suicide truck bomb blast killed more than 100 people at a market in the farming town of Armili and was among the deadliest this year in Iraq. Two military air ambulances would leave for Iraq on Sunday to bring around 30 of the wounded for treatment in hospitals in the Turkish capital, Ankara, Foreign Ministry Deputy Spokesman Adnan Kececi said. Turkey's Foreign Ministry late Saturday condemned the attack at Armili, which it said was mostly inhabited by the ethnic Turkmen minority, and offered to treat some of the wounded in Turkey. Ankara feels special responsibility for its ethnic brethren the Turkmen, who speak a Turkic language.
