Turkey Turns To NATO

In the wake of terrorist attacks in the border town in Suruc, Turkey has called an emergency meeting of NATO. Turkey is calling the NATO meeting to discuss its attacks on Islamic State in Syria as well as the PKK in Iraq.

Article 4 of the NATO treaty allows members to call emergency meeting if their territorial integrity is under threat. Article 4 of the treaty has only been put to use 5 times.

The emergency meeting is scheduled to take place in Brussels on Tuesday. A car bomb in Turkey today left two people dead just after the attack in Suruc killed 32 people. ¨

Turkey is set to discuss the threats to its security and has launched aerial strikes against Syrian targets as well as Iraq.
