Attack On U.S Consulate In Istanbul Leaves 5 Dead
As Turkey continues its war on terror, perhaps it comes to mind to ask if they have bitten off more than they can chew. After getting approval from NATO, Turkey has carried out air strikes against ISIL positions in Syria as well as Iraq.
However, the terrorists aren’t lying down or playing dead. There have been three attacks on Turkey in the last three weeks, two of which have been linked to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).
Today, gunmen opened fire on the United States consulate building in Istanbul and also carried out a bomb attack on a police station leaving five security personnel dead´.
Already, the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Army-Front (DHKP/C) claimed responsibility for the attack on the US consulate and security forces reported that a female assailant was captured after a shootout with Police.
