From the hospital he published a first tweet explaining his situation: “Dear friends, I am under observation for now, since I have swelling in some parts of my head.”

“I know the authors. I will never surrender to fascism, ”he stressed, before adding that both he and his family are under police protection. Subsequently, he spoke on Thursday in a video on his Twitter account about three attackers involved.

Acarer was accused in Turkey along with other journalists of publishing classified information on State intelligence and security activities related to Ankara’s military involvement in the war in Libya, where he supported the internationally recognized unity government.
