Military Review

The Turkish authorities hold an emergency meeting in connection with the explosion in Istanbul and prohibit the Turkish media to publish information about the terrorist attack.

55
Just a couple of hours after the first reports about the terrorist attack in the Blue Mosque area and the fire in a large Istanbul hotel appeared in the Turkish media, these messages strangely began to disappear or be corrected in the direction of "reducing" the number of victims. Information Agency Anadolu clarified the situation by publishing a note stating that the Turkish authorities decided to ban the publication in the media of any materials on the terrorist act in the country's largest city. The official Ankara does not name the reasons for the ban on publishing data on the terrorist attack in the media. Freedom of speech…


The Turkish authorities hold an emergency meeting in connection with the explosion in Istanbul and prohibit the Turkish media to publish information about the terrorist attack.


Western media write that the largest number of victims of the terrorist attack are German citizens. According to the latest data, out of 10 who died at a public transport stop in the center of Istanbul, nine were citizens of Germany. Most of the injured are also German citizens.

At the moment, the Turkish government is holding an emergency meeting, during which issues of an “anti-terrorism nature” are being discussed. The meeting is attended by the country's Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Minister of the Interior Efkan Ala and other representatives of the Cabinet. When it comes to the “anti-terrorism” agenda of the meeting of the Turkish Cabinet, they recall the flirtations that the Turkish authorities have tried and are still leading with terrorists of various stripes, hoping that such advances will benefit the country ...

    You can’t flirt with terrorists. The Turkish authorities apparently have gone far from these truths, and ordinary people will suffer from terror.

          Or do you think that the sharp surge in Kurdish performances in Turkey is accidental?

            If you were interested in the situation in Turkey, you would understand that the aggravation has been going on there since SUMMER, and only over the end of summer and the beginning of September a little more than 100 Turkish military men died, and then the aggravation went to naught and the military and police lost very little.
            Therefore, Russia has nothing to do with it.

              A hot situation with the Kurds among the Turks since the 70s. In the summer, the aggravation began with the filing of the Americans, who needed the Kurds in Syria. But the Turks entered the tanks in their Kurdistan recently. and they work there using aviation. By all the laws of war. Therefore, the losses decreased, which stopped waving sabers, and took up the matter seriously.
              If you recall Putin’s speech at the UN assembly, he said four times that Russia’s air forces had been brought into Syria at the request of a legitimate government led by Bashar al-Assad to help the Syrian army and the Kurds in the fight against IS and other terrorist groups.
              So Russia can very much be.
              Putin does not say anything in vain. I think you managed to make sure of this.

                Yes, what does it have to do with ??? As if before this, the Kurds attacked with large formations, and now they entered tanks and started aviation and the losses decreased.
                90% of the losses of the military and police were due to the destruction of mines on the roads. During the ceasefire, which was concluded with the Kurds, the Kurds stocked up, but exhausted their fuse.
                It’s necessary to understand how you wouldn’t want the Kurds to be the TOY of the USA and Israel and to a lesser extent Europe. This is their project, they are sponsored and supported.
                Therefore, Putin is not involved in business at all, as if you didn’t want this.

              Politics is a dirty thing. I remember that there were a lot of comments at one time that the Turks had to immediately extinguish rockets. Smart politicians use other methods of influence. And the methods are little dependent on which country applies them. As they are to us, so are we to them. And there’s nothing to make of girls to marry. If you want to be the leading state in the world, understand and accept that leaders achieve their goals by any means. Otherwise, they would not have become leaders.

        What are the Kurds? fool when the Kurds carried out terrorist attacks in Istanbul ... and also against tourists? fool The Kurdish workers' party is waging an armed struggle with the Turkish army and police, and exclusively on the territory of the so-called Kurdistan (even if it is now partly part of the Turkish Republic). Istanbul is not related to Kurdistan (I will call it conditionally).

        There are several possible Kurds, but the question is why Istanbul, not Ankara. After all, the PKK’s goal is power and power structures are not in their interests to touch pretty secular Istanbul, if only radicals. I personally am inclined to think that these are Islamists, I don’t know which group, but it’s for them tourists and secular Turks like a bone in their throats. I note that in Turkish society for many years there has been a discussion about secular new Turkey or about neo-Ottomanism with a bias in religion. So this attack, in my opinion, is a blow to secular society. hi

      For some reason, I think that in the near future Perdogan’s statement will appear that they are Kurds from the Iraqi side (where there is a Turkish base and tanks under guard) they blew up the people. And what is necessary to certainly strengthen the military presence there in order to avoid repeated ter.atak.

    the largest number of victims of the attack - German citizens
    And this turret was given to you, comrades Germans. Fly by Aeroflot planes to rest in Crimea. But jokes aside, and seriously, another terrorist attack occurred and civilians died again. As reported, mostly Germans. And all this against the background events in Cologne and in other cities. There, and so the people's anger splashes out on the street in the form of acts of violence against visitors and peaceful protests (dispersed by the police). Now, it is likely that the Turks (of which there are many in Germany) will also get it. "swing" by such deeds. The more you squeeze the spring, the more it wants to straighten.

    When things are going very badly in Turkey, as they wrote above, we don’t turn the Turkish government into one way or another. This attack will allow the Turkish authorities to distract the people from more important problems and, moreover, to unite the nation in a single fight against the enemy (the enemy will be appointed authorities) and forget about disagreements. And those who will be against it will immediately be accused of aiding terrorists and not patriotism. And believe that the Turkish authorities will squeeze the maximum out of it for themselves.
    Erdogan: a bomb in Istanbul detonated a suicide bomber from Syria

    The head of Turkey also said that a bomb near a group of tourists was blown up by a suicide bomber from Syria. and confirmed that the attack killed foreigners.

    And how the German citizens, that is, the FOREIGNERS, were correctly chosen as the target for the attack. Do you understand where the wind blows and why?

      The Turkish people even support Erdogan’s policies and actions without any acts of terrorism. If you are not in the know, the attitude of the Turks towards the Kurds is the same as in Russia towards the Gypsies. So to attribute to Erdogan the desire to inspire terrorist acts inside Turkey is a poor understanding of what is happening there. From the point of view of the Turks, their situation fully repeats the situation in Russia during the Chechen wars, and the interests of the Turks in Syria are similar to the interests of Russia in the Crimea and on the outskirts.
      To carry out a terrorist attack in a city of strategic importance for Turkey and finally kill the tourism business (the lion's share of the Turkish budget) - do you seriously think that Erdogan would authorize it?
      This is clearly an external intervention and the execution method speaks of the work of special services. Just like in Paris.
      How Erdogan will beat this is a matter of using an accomplished fact.

    Most likely, Erdogan's special services were in charge of the terrorists who carried out this act of terrorism. And now Erdogan will point ... to the Syrian Kurds! And Assad, of course. The fact that this is not because of the PKK is obvious (indeed, Istanbul is not Ankara, a strange platform for internal Turkish squabbles). Latent motives are being felt: 1) Obamkin's owners "nodded" (as in the case of our SU-24) that it would be nice to scare the Germans after the Cologne demonstrations; 2) at the same time stimulate the Europeans to actively participate in the ground operation on the territory of the SAR; 3) once again chant "Assad must leave". As always, with one shot - for several targets, some of them will work, and it is better if all. Well, in a sense, it's better for Erdogan and the overseas partner.

    Hmm, but I think that the operation was planned by the Turks, but not in order to accuse the Kurds or the Russian Federation - they do not need any reasons for this. Judge for yourself - a major operation of the Turks under the cover of the United States in northern Syria was planned before the downed drying. The Russian Federation responded stronger than expected and our air / aviation assets cut off the wings of the Turks. Now, for sure, there will be an attempt to convince the Russian Federation (not only from the United States and the Turks, but the Germans), to forget about the "misunderstandings" with drying, and to untie the Turks' hands in their dirty business of annexing northern Syria and expanding the ISIS security zone under the patronage of their old friends. The Turks, with the help of Germany, want to return to the "big game" in the Middle East, from which they were tactfully thrown out.
