An explosion occurred in the port of Tuzla in Istanbul, killing and wounding two workers.
Turkish media reported that an explosion occurred in the port of Tuzla in Istanbul, killing one person and injuring another.
According to Turkish media, the explosion occurred in the morning, on board a ship in the shipyards area in Tuzla, indicating that it was caused by gas pressure in the ship's waste tank, which resulted in the death of one worker and the injury of another.
It is noteworthy that about a week ago, a violent explosion shook the commercial port of Derince on the Sea of Marmara in Kocaeli, in the grain loading area for ships in the silos of the Turkish Grain Council, which caused damage to 13 silos out of 16, and injured at least 12 people.
