The suspect identified as Yusuf Nazik, 34, has confessed his role in the 2013 car bombings and also revealed that the twin bombings were orchestrated by Syrian intelligence also known as Mukhabarat spy agency.

In a video released on Wednesday by the Turkish government, Nazik called on other suspects to surrender and warned Turkey would hold the Assad government to account for the attack.
