A group of aggressors attacked the students in a university campus in the Turkish capital Ankara on Thursday, while some brandishing blades, according to witnesses, stormed a faculty building trying to intimidate the students.
The incident occured in the Cebeci Campus that housed the Faculty of Poltical Sciences of Ankara University.
Daily Evrensel reported that while the aggressors were moved out of the campus without any use of force and no aggressor was detained, the campus has been encircled by the police.
An earlier attack in the same campus had occured on Tuesday when a group of students preparing to organise a forum about the economic problems they are facing were targeted. The attack, like the more recent one, was politically motivated.
In both cases, the aggressors were supporters of the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), a partner of the ruling coalition ‘People’s Alliance’ in Turkey.
The police used teargas against the students who had been under attack and tried to prevent the students from recording the incident with their mobile phones.
