EU-Bericht: AKP war wohl in Anschlag in Ankara verwickelt

Aus dem Netz

Ein Verdacht, der seit Jahren besteht, erhärtet sich:

A report by the European Union’s official intelligence body, EU INTCEN, has suggested that the October 10, 2015 suicide bombing of a peace march outside the Ankara train station may have been committed on the orders of Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), according to a report by online news outlet Ahval.

The terror attack, in which two bombers belonging to the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) blew themselves up in the midst of a crowd made up largely of leftists and Kurdish sympathisers, was the deadliest terrorist attack in modern Turkish history, killing 109 civilians and injuring 500 more.

It followed the ISIL bombings of a pro-Kurdish political party rally in Diyarbakır on July 5 in which five were killed and over 100 injured, and of a group of leftists in the town of Suruç in Turkey’s Şanlıurfa province who were planning a solidarity trip to the Kurdish Syrian town of Kobani on July 20, 2015, in which 33 were killed and 104 injured.
