Unfortunately, terrorism has shown its ugly face once again. Turkish Student Association fiercely condemns the triple suicide bombing at Istanbul Ataturk International Airport on 06/28/2016 that killed at least 41 innocent people from 14 different countries, while wounding 239 others.
Istanbul, a magnificent historic city, sits on a strategic location. It is a major air transportation hub that connect international flights from Asia, Africa, and Europe. If you are traveling a lot, either you have already been to or most probably will stop by this beautiful city sometime throughout your life. With its cultural diversity, vivid life, and incredible history, Istanbul holds a special place in every Turkish citizen’s heart. We can not find enough words to describe how sorry Turkish community feels at the moment. Even though we are far away, our hearts are with Istanbul.
It is time for international community to stand together as one against terrorism. We wish our deepest condolences to the families of the victims. May God have mercy upon innocent civilians who lost their lives in the attack and we wish those injured a quick recovery. We hope the perpetrators will soon be identified and brought to justice.
