Turkey Rocked by Possible Kurdish Separatist Attacks

 

Holiday makers and locals alike were caught in multiple explsions across Turkey. The attacks resulted in several injuries - none of which were life threatening.

The attacks happened in the evening of 27th August 2006 in the popular resorts of Istanbul and Marmaris. The nationalities of the injured were British and Turkish. Kurdish separatists have conducted five attacks since November last year.

Despite these attacks, the British Foreign Office has not changed travel advice for its citizens headed for Turkey. The organisation warns of a "high terror threat" but does not discourage travel to this country.

From the source:

"There is no indication, as yet, of who carried out the attacks.

Kurdish separatists, Islamic militants and leftist extremists have all carried out attacks in Turkey in the past."

Please be sure not to add things from other sources if the exact opposite of what you're saying is in the source you're summarising.

  we saw it all coming..  
 
In a related SN article:"Iran And Turkey Shell Kurds In Iraq" we saw the signs of future violence.
http://www.shortnews.com/...

The reaction to that article was Turkey and Iran were 'in the wrong' because it had launched an attack disproportionate to Kurdish provocation.

The 'comments' to that article also make it interesting reading.

Yesterday, Turkey is the over-reacting nation shelling neighbouring teritory. Today, people will capitalise on violence and say:

"one of our *muslim* 'coalition' members was hurt; the WAR on Terror will go on!"
