German embassy officials in Ankara told Hurriyet Daily News, a local newspaper in Turkey, that the move was a “one-day precaution taken due to [an] unconfirmed indication of an attack.”

The move comes days after a car bomb attack in Ankara killed 37 people, for which the Kurdish terror group TAK claimed responsibility Thursday. The German embassy warned its citizens in Turkey to be careful, Deutche Welle, a German news agency, reported.

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu is scheduled to meet leaders from the European Union in Brussels, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Friday. The meeting will review a draft deal between Turkey and the EU over the exchange of refugees and to lift visa travel restrictions for  Turkish citizens entering Europe, the Wall Street Journal reported.

"The only way to end these threats is to kill and eventually eradicate all these ruthless and mentally deranged murderers", said a Turkish politician, when he heard the news of the closures.
