An Iranian bus travelling to Syria was fired at by unknown attackers in the Erçiş district of the Van province of eastern Turkey.
Eight people, including the bus driver, were wounded out of the 40 passengers on board.
Two unknown suspects opened fire at the bus when the driver refused to stop despite their warning, Hürriyet reported. The bus driver managed to reach the nearest police station despite the shower of bullets, but the suspects escaped before the vehicle or the license plate could be identified.
The wounded were transferred to nearby hospitals immediately.
The identities of the attackers, as well as the cause of the attack, still remain unknown.
