Deadly bombing in Seruc (Sarugh), north of Turkish border
« on: July 20, 2015, 09:39:26 PM »
An apparent suicide bombing ripped through a rally Monday in the Turkish border town of Suruc, killing at least 31 people, Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said.

At least 100 others were wounded, provincial Gov. Izzettin Kucuk told Turkish media.

The explosion occurred at midday at the Amara Cultural Park in Suruc, where a group had gathered calling for more help to rebuild the Syrian Kurdish city of Kobani, CNN Turk reported.


ISIL is almost certainly responsible. More here.
I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

Isn't that the same city that was given to Metropolitan Anthony Bloom as a titular see?
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

No; Sourozh (now Sudak) is a city in the Crimea.

Seruc was the home of the Syriac St. Jacob of Sarugh.

Indeed



The Turks have been playing with fire since 2011, it only makes sense they're beginning to get burned.

Uh, the victims here were Kurds and leftist sympathizers of the YPG. The exact people who have been doing to most to fight ISIL.

I was referring to the country/territory itself. Erdogan has been giving logistical support the insurgent fighting in Syria since 2011, now they're attacking at his doorstep and innocents are getting hurt. The fruits of neo-Ottomanism I suppose. But we're not in the politics board, so I'll stop while I'm ahead.

Turkey is not "burned" by the slaughter of YPG supporters. They may very well have looked the other way or even helped the bomber get it.

Perhaps. But Turkey will deeply regret supporting these terrorists, all things in due time, I suppose.

Ah screw it, good night.
