Three police officers have been killed by a car bomb explosion outside a police station in Turkey near the Syrian border, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Wednesday.

As many as 30 others have been injured and multiple ambulances have been sent to the scene in the town of Midyat, in the Kurdish majority southeast.

The prime minister has blamed Kurdish militants for the attack. The Kurdish worker’s party, or PKK, has been targeting Turkish police and military since July in their struggle for autonomy in Turkey’s southeast.

Prime minister Yildirim spoke after visiting those injured in an attack in Istanbul that occurred just a day before, killing 11 people, including seven officers, and wounding 36 others during the morning rush hour.
