Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has denounced Monday’s suicide car bombing attack on a military base in central Afghanistan, a media report said on Tuesday.

At least a dozen security personnel were killed and 30 others wounded in the Taliban-claimed assault on the security base in the capital of Maidan Wardak province.

Erdogan extended condolences to his Afghan counterpart Ashraf Ghani in a message, according to the state-run Anadolu Agency.

“I condemn this terrorist attack … I repeat once again that Turkey is with friendly and brotherly Afghanistan in its fight against terrorism,” he added.

Erdogan wished a swift recovery to those injured in the assault on a camp of the National Directorate of Security (NDS). A US-made Humvee was driven into the compound and blown up.
