The attacks on Saturday in Turkey against a peaceful rally, highlights another security problem bubbling up within Europe. The rally was calling for an end to violence between the separatist Kurds (PKK) and the Turkish state, which was disrupted through bombings. The origins of the attacks are still to be confirmed, although the Kurds are starting to blame the Turkish states: a statement that is supported by claims that police at the scene attacked people trying to carry the injured away.
One could argue that the suppression of the Kurds for several years makes events such as these inevitable, and that violence was almost always a sure option. With crisis’s such as the mass migration of refugees and the economic downfall of Greece, does Europe have the necessary man power to contain security issues such as these?
