Jarring footage shows gun battle and aftermath of car bombing in Turkey's Izmir

Izmir bombingTwitterThe scene after the blast.

On Thursday, a group of unidentified attackers drove a car to the entrance of a courthouse in the Turkish city of Izmir, and detonated explosives in the vehicle.

Reuters reports that many were injured, some critically, with 10 hospitalized.

In the immediate aftermath of the bombing, police reportedly shot dead two attackers, though a third may still be on the run. 

Turkish officials have blamed Kurdish militants for the attack. No parties have yet claimed the attack as their own.

The bombing came just days after an ISIS-claimed attack on a night club on New Year’s Eve which left 39 dead.

The footage below shows the gun battle, as filmed by workers at a nearby construction site. No gore is visible in the video, though it is jarring.
