There was a particularly horrendous event in Gazientep, Turkey last night when a suicide bomb took the lives of 50 people at a wedding party and injured over 100 more. The suicide bomber involved was a young boy aged between 12-14 and the bomb was detonated electronically, probably by a throw away cell phone.
The screen shot above was from a video posted by one of the guests, who happened to have their phone out and pointed in the direction of the explosion at the exact moment of the blast. The video’s available on Live Leak, but I see no reason to post it here.
The Turkish government was quick to blame ISIS. According to Turkey’s leader Tayyip Erdoğan. “all the evidence points to ISIS.”
What that evidence consists of hasn’t been shared, nor, if things go as usual in today’s Turkey, will it ever be.
But was it ISIS who pulled this off?
Certainly they’re more than capable of it. But were they actually the ones who did this bombing? Let’s look at a few interesting facts.
