Istanbul (CNN)It was a deft strike at the heart of Turkey’s culture and its multibillion-dollar tourist industry.

.

The suicide bombing on Sultanahmet Square Tuesday killed 10 foreign nationals — at least eight of them German citizens. It was the deadliest attack on Germans abroad in more than 13 years.

.

As the people of Istanbul began to regroup Wednesday, Turkey’s Prime Minister promised that the nation’s resolve to fight terror remains unchanged.

.

“We will continue our fight against terrorism with the same resolve and will never take a step back,” Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said, according to Turkey’s semiofficial Anadolu news agency.

.

“We will never compromise, not one single inch.”

.

As if to underscore the point, Turkey detained 68 terror suspects in sweeps across seven provinces, Anadolu reported Wednesday.

.

This figure included three Russians who were staying at a house in Antalya, an account also reported by Russia’s state-run Sputnik news.

.

Another 21 people held in Sanliurfa “were … preparing for attacks in Turkey,” according to Anadolu. And 16 people — 15 of them Syrian — were detained in Ankara for allegedly starting to scout out buildings there.

.

One of those caught in the security sweep is being held in connection with the Istanbul blast, according to Turkish Interior Minister Efkan Ala.

The attack had financial and cultural significance, and it took place in an area heavily guarded by Turkish security forces.

.

Sajjan Gohel, international security director at the Asia-Pacific Foundation, doesn’t think it’s a coincidence this suicide blast happened in a square that’s both a draw for tourists and significant to Turkey’s history and its diverse cultural identity — the type of place, he said, “that ISIS is so deeply opposed to.”

.

“The type of monuments that are in Sultanahmet Square are the type that ISIS has been blowing up in Syria,” Gohel told CNN. “It’s seen as a place where you have a mesh of different entities. It’s a real melting pot.”
