    On Monday, Turkey’s president urged the US to locate the “terrorist” who assaulted the Turkish House in New York and “do whatever is necessary.”

    “In Europe, the (terrorist group) PKK has seen that things are deteriorating and has begun to attack voters.” They most likely claim that these voters support the People’s Alliance. That is why they attack.

    “In addition, they have broken the windows of the Turkish House in America, which is located directly across from the United Nations (building) in the United States.” Why? You were a liberal. “What do you gain by breaking the windows of the Turkish House?” said Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

    “Are we not going to tell the American authorities and security forces, ‘You need to find this terrorist quickly, and you need to do whatever it takes?'” “I wonder how you would react if a similar incident occurred in Turkey,” he said during an event in Istanbul.

    He stated that the Turkish House is in the hands of US officials.

    “You must track down this terrorist who used a crowbar to smash the windows of the Turkish House.”

    Over the course of its more than 35-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – designated as a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the United States, and the European Union – has killed over 40,000 people, including women, children, and babies.

    In the early hours of Monday, the Turkish House in New York, a designated structure for diplomatic missions and cultural events, was assaulted overnight.

    The offender damaged the building’s windows around 3.14 a.m. local time, according to Turkish Consul General in New York Reyhan Ozgur.

    He claimed no one was wounded, but the building’s 12 windows and doors, which opened in 2021, were damaged.

    Ozgur further stated that the perpetrator, who has yet to be recognised, left behind a little crowbar.

    The New York Police Department cordoned off the tower, and the event is being investigated.

    The incident has not affected voting in Türkiye’s presidential election runoff for Turkish nationals, who continue to vote at the Turkish House, according to Ozgur.
