Russian And Turkey Unite To Flatten ISIS After Airport Terror Attack

Turkey airport attack

The two nations have reunited after a monumental fall out over the downing of a Russian jet in Turkish airspace last year [Turkey will compensate the family of the Russian pilot killed – r. a. note] but renewed efforts to defeat the terrorist group appear to have united old enemies.

Three suspected ISIS bombers opened fire and blew themselves up at the Ataturk airport – Europe’s third-busiest – on Tuesday evening, killing 41 people and wounding 239.

President Tayyip Erdogan said the attack should serve as a turning point in the global fight against terrorism, which he said had “no regard for faith or values”.

He spoke this morning to his adversary Russian President Vladimir Putin about the need to destroy ISIS.

Putin and Erdogan TurkeyPutin and Erdogan expressed a determination to restore relations between Moscow and Ankara and push ahead with a shared fight against terrorism during this morning’s telephone conversation, the Turkish president’s office said.

A statement added it was important for Turkey and Russia to cooperate on political, economic and humanitarian crises in the region.

The pair agreed to meet in person after the phone call – clear signs that both leaders hope to put aside their past differences over how to respond to ISIS.

On Monday, Erdogan expressed regret in a letter to Putin over Turkey’s downing of the Russian warplane last year, although the Kremlin later sought to dampen Turkey’s hopes for a swift restoration of normal relations.

Ten of those killed in last night’s attack were foreign nationals while three people held dual nationality.

One attacker opened fire in the departures hall with an automatic rifle, sending passengers diving for cover and trying to flee, before all three blew themselves up in or around the arrivals hall a floor below, witnesses and officials said.

Head of the Russian Federation Council’s International Affairs Committee, Konstantin Kosachev, suggested the terror attack was aimed at derailing the attempts of Turkey’s leadership to repair relations with Russia.

He said: “It seems that Turkey is being ‘warned’ against the participation in the single anti-terrorist front being created by efforts of the Russian diplomacy in the first place.

“No matter what happens, today we feel solidarity with the people of Turkey.”

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
