Belarus' embassy in Ankara has recommended Belarusian citizens not to travel to south-east Turkey. This is due to the recent terrorist attacks near the border with Syria.

There were three explosions in which 13 people died. Another 300 injured were taken to hospital. Because of these events the country has increased the level of terrorist threat. Police presence in streets has increased. Vehicles will be examined with special predilection. After all, terrorists hid bombs in cars.
