Dangerous times in Turkey (Relevant for GS Mains Paper II)

Tuesday night’s suicide attack on Istanbul’s Ataturk airport that killed 41 people is yet another reminder of the dangerous times Turkey is living through. Its southern border has become a transit point for jihadists travelling to Syria. Western analysts say it is an act of the Islamic State. 

Result of Controversial strategies adopted by Turkey

It is a blowback for Turkey’s Policy in Syria. From the advent of the Syrian crisis, he has led the call for President Bashar al-Assad’s resignation. 

Turkey kept its 800-km-long border with Syria open so that militants from around the world could transit to Syria. This ‘open-border’ approach was pivotal in the IS’s efforts to build an army of foreign fighters.

But, playing with extremist groups for short-term goals is invariably counterproductive in the long run. By the time Turkey started changing its policy towards the IS, partly under pressure from Western allies, the group was already a formidable terrorist organisation and had turned its bombers northwards.
