The Turkish Salafi terrorists state is responsible for all of those destructions and killings, by supporting & supplying those Muslim ISIL savages, Muslim brotherhood & all of other Salafi Muslim terrorists. Today Turkish Muslim terrorists are for to regain Kurdish territories in Iraq & Syria, destroying the ancient Kurdistan, killing their poor Kurdish citizen by burning them alive, shooting them without asking them any questions, destroying their houses by their tank & Airplains, burning their forest and orchards and killing their poor animals, by their one year and half immoral & unjust brutal curfew. You have to wonder, who and how those supposed to be civilized nations are going to stop this Hitler immitator half Turkish Imam/priest? you have to wonder!
