At least 28 people killed as ISIS suicide bomber blows himself up at a cultural centre in southern Turkey

At least 20 people have been killed in a suicide bombing at a cultural centre in the Turkish town of Suruc, close to the border with Syria.

The blast in the town – which lies opposite the Syrian flashpoint of Kobane – was described as a ‘terrorist attack’ by the interior ministry, who stopped short of declaring it the work of ISIS militants.

But Turkish officials speaking anonymously said an initial investigation suggests the terror group are behind the atrocity, which comes just days after Turkey made its first serious efforts to combat ISIS with a round of arrests of militants and their supporters in the country.

    How will ISIS explain this one, murdering their fellow Sunnis? The Turks have become apostates because they oppose Allah’s state, the Caliphate? Of course, they don’t really need a reason, other than they love bloodshed, pain and death.

    “Caliphate” – that must be another name for Hell on Earth.

      Turkey could crush Daesh in summary fashion. I wonder how many such episodes would be needed.

    It’s 5:3 against this was in fact a false flag by the Turkish government. How long before they blame the Jews?

    It’s called biting the hand that feeds them.

  • How’s that degrading thing going?

    Perhaps this will get Turkey off its ass to put an end to ISIS.

      Sure, Turkey has already stated that they’ll fight ISIS, and any other people, such as the Kurds, that they don’t like. Frankly Erdogan is drawing Turkey down the sewer hole with the rest of the muslim scum. Have a nice trip.
