IS’ statement called the gunman, who is still on the run, its “soldier” who attacked Christians for celebrating a holiday the jihadist terrorists deem “apostate,” reported Dogan News Agency.

An armed assailant opened fire at Reina Club, reportedly dressed as Santa Claus, killing 24 foreigners, 11 Turkish citizens and four victims yet to be identified.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim dismissed the claims the attacker was dressed as Santa Claus, despite CCTV appearing to show that they were, according to Daily Sabah.

Turkish Police said the attacker has “yet to be identified”.

Ankara and Istanbul have been targeted by several attacks throughout 2016 carried out by IS terrorists or PKK militants, killing more than 180 people, reported Yeni Safak.
