It's very hard to get infos as per usual with Erdogan....reports are contradictory but all are nonetheless terrible. AFP talks about 32 dead and 88 wounded.

Sr. US counter-terror official says “very likely” attack was work of 35 ISIS terrorists sent to Turkey ahead of Ramadan - @BraddJaffy

Nope, i guess we all ask ourselves this nowadays since they are all so back to back.

It's shocking how not shocked we are by this anymore. Those poor people.

This is the scariest part of this. We assimilated that it's now part of our lives. This is the world we live in since 9/11. This is the new normal. :-(

I've just talked to a friend of mine who's Turkish and lives in Izmir, but flies regularly to Istanbul for business. She had landed 90 minutes before the terrorist attack. My poor friend, she's absolutely terrified.

More and more I think that only a MAJOR threat from outer space could bring some peace and unity to the human race.

Turkey has blocked Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Thats a bit retarded to do this, in Egypt we dont block social media when we face terrorist attaques.

It's not because media talk about it that people care.

2-3 post max on my Facebook.

And it's already at the bottom of my newspaper website page.

People don't care because there's no westerner among the victims. :(

People are getting used to this, i'm afraid, especially if the attacks are out of Europe, even if it's the border.

It's different in canada then. Here it's the top story and everybody is talking about it. Probably because it's geographically close & there is a big Turkish population living here.

Counter terrorism specialists are warning people of other attacks being planned by Isis in the week leading to the Eid Al Adha celebration marking the end of Ramadan.

Isis just wants a war, they expect the far right wing to strike back.

French secret services are warning about it (it's in french sorry)

Some of their leaders have been jailed this week for things they did 2 years ago but there are dormant agents just like with islamists.

When are they not preparing to strike tho? IS has always wanted a war.

It baffles me that such a well documented terrorist group still manage to do things like that. It feels like there is no world coordination to stop them and some powers that be that benefit from it all.

Well, they're not a country. They're a mindset, a concept, a philosophy. That's pretty hard to destroy. They use the internet. It's hard to find anyone who would be up for censoring the web/information. That's a slippery slope. That's why they will always be in existence.

You can find everything about them on Twitter. Journalists have precise plans Isis shared on the darknet they post on Twitter since hackers from around the world keep hacking and tracking them.
