“Istanbul explosion: overview of this year’s surge in violence and terror attacks in Turkey. As no claim of responsibility has been issued for the blast in Istanbul, three main suspects have been unveiled: the Islamic state group, eager to take revenge on Turkey for its harder line on the terrorist organisation, the PKK, for the continuing fight against the Turkish army, and extreme-leftist groups that have an history of violence in the country.”

  1. This is excellent news for Erdogan. With war raging in the Kurdish Southeast and MHP a shambles more so then normally, a snap election (which many observers are predicting) will give him enough seats to rewrite the constitution.

    Meanwhile, Juan, no mention of YÖK targeting Turkish academics who signed a peace protection? They’ve even got extra muscle with Erdogan’s newest ally, ultranationalist and crime boss Sedat Peker.

  2. Is this a surprise? Just look at Pakistan, having Afpak on your border and supporting armed insurgency in your neighborhood does that with more to come.
