Un attacco suicida ha colpito Istanbul stamane facendo almeno dieci vittime. E’ l’ennesimo in questi mesi e stavolta arriva in uno dei luoghi simbolici della Turchia e dei più visitati dai turisti: il grande piazzale dove si guardano la Moschea blu e quella di Solimano. I morti sono dieci e il presidente Erdogan, che ha ordinato – per l’ennesima volta – un black-out delle comunicazioni, ha detto che si tratta di un attentato di matrice siriana. Senza però spiegare quali gruppi sarebbero coinvolti.

Tra le vittime potrebbero esserci dei turisti, di certo un cittadino norvegese è stato ricoverato in ospedale. Uno stile di attentato che somiglia a quelli di gruppi legati all’ISIS che puntano a colpire i luoghi del turismo per generare odio anti-islamico nelle società occidentali. Ad ottobre i morti a una manifestazione dell’Hdp per la pace tra PKK e Turchia ad Ankara sono 100.
