Dozens dead after terror attack in Turkish border leaves 28 dead and more than 100 wounded

A suicide explosion that happened on Monday has killed at least 28 people and wounded over 100 in the Turkish boarder town of Suruc, according to provincial Gov. Izzettin Kucuk.

As the report of CNN in Turkey states, the explosion happened during midday at the Amara Cultural park in Suruc where people were gathering and calling for help to rebuild the Syrian Kurdish city of Kobani.

Suruc is a border city in Turkey, about 6 miles to the city of Kobani, which was the scene of furious fighting among Syrian rebels, Kurdish forces and ISIS.

Photos and videos taken from the Amara Cultural park, show emergency services giving aid to the victims while bodies are scattered around.

Turkish officials said that they have enough evidence to show that this suicide explosion was organised by ISIS. The Turkish ministry of Interior announced to its people that the purpose of the attack is to break the unity of Turkish society.

ISIS is known as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or simply IS (Islamic State). It is a Salafi Jihadi extremist militant group in Iraq and Syria, which has organized many terror attacks around the world. There have been more than ten million people living in the territory which they have occupied until 2015 and they are still expanding. The town of Suruc, the place where the suicide bombing happened, is on the border of Turkey and Syria.
