Turkey terror attacks

Turkish officials announced that the three men who carried out the attacks on Istanbul Ataturk International Airport this week were of Russian, Uzbek and Kyrgyz nationalities. The attack killed 43 people, and injured more than 140 others. Why has no terrorist group stepped up to claim responsibility? Why has Turkey been experiencing increased attacks in recent months? Is it possible to prevent more when current security precautions seem to have had little impact? Should anti-ISIL campaign strategy be re-considered across the region? Join us for an in-depth discussion with Yan Shuai, Analyst at the Anti-Terrorism Center at the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations; in Washington DC, Bulent Aliriza, Director and Senior Associate of the Turkey Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies; and in Istanbul, Savas Bicer, Instructor at Istanbul Esenyurt University and lecturer at the Institute for Strategic Researches at the Turkish War College.
