TURKEY- Following Tuesday’s attack on the main airport in Istanbul, Turkish officials began a process all too familiar over the last year: sorting through clues as to which of their two main terror threats is responsible.
Turkey has had at least 14 terror attacks this year that have killed over 200 people.
The Turkish government is blaming Tuesday’s attack on the Islamic State, and many analysts are in agreement.
And while that group has claimed responsibility for some of the attacks, others have been attributed to Kurdish militants.
Both groups, who are enemies themselves, have inflicted terrible violence on Turkey.
Both organizations gain momentum and aggression from their participation in the war in Syria, leaving Turkey to deal with the bloodshed and complexities of being geographically situated next to the conflict.
