It should be noted that in recent times almost any incident, at least in some way resembling a terrorist act, has been decided by the Turkish authorities to “hang” on Kurds. At one time, the charge of committing a terrorist act in the east of the country against the Kurds was taken by official Ankara to end the truce regime between the central authorities and the Kurdistan Workers' Party for a relatively long time. After the incident, the Turkish Air Force began to strike at the Peshmerga (Kurdish militia in Syria and Iraq) fighting the ISIS.
