Armed group Kurdistan Freedom Hawks (TAK) has claimed responsibility for a recent suicide bombing in Istanbul that killed 11 people.

The TAK, which is seen as a splinter group of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), said Tuesday’s attack was revenge for Turkish army operations in the Kurdish-dominated southeastern region.

In an online statement on Friday, TAK said the attack was a suicide bombing.
