Gunshots were fired at the US embassy in Ankara but no casualties were recorded.

At the early hours, on Monday less than six shots were fired at the US embassy, with three bullets targetted at the window wall and iron gate. However, the Ankara governor’s office has reported, saying,

“there are no casualties”

as reported by Reuter news agency, the incidence happened at around 5 am (02:00 GMT) and that nobody was hurt.
The US embassy spokesman David Gainer also confirmed the incidence, he said,

“security incident” had taken place.

he also appreciated the Turkish national police for their rapid response.

“We have no reports of any injuries and we are investigating the details. We thank the Turkish national police for their rapid response,” he said.

Just last week, ties between Washington and Ankara have been affected over the case of an imprisoned US pastor Andrew Brunson, leading the US to impose sanctions and increased tariffs that sent the Turkish currency falling.
In a written statement before the Muslim feast of Eid al-Adha, Erdoğan said:

“The attack aimed at our economy has no difference from an attack aimed at our call to prayer or flag.”
The president also added that those who believed they would bring Turkey to its knees through the foreign currency exchange rate would “soon see they are mistaken”.
