Two explosive-laden unmanned drones crashed in the yard of a governor’s office’s premises and a land belonging to the local gendarmerie headquarters in the southeastern province of Şırnak on Nov. 10, Demirören News Agency reported.

Initial inspections revealed that the drones were laden with C-4 type explosives and were packed with nails and metal pieces to increase their impact.

The drone crashed into a parade ground in the yard of the premises of the Şırnak Governor’s Office shortly after a ceremony that was held to mark the 80th death anniversary of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of the Republic of Turkey.

According to the news agency, the drone came down after state officials and other attendees left the parade ground.

Around the same time a second drone crashed into a land that belonged to the headquarters of the 23rd gendarmerie border division.

There were no reported casualties.

The news agency reported that both remote-controlled drones laden with C-4 plastic explosives were packed with nails and metal pieces.
