The Heat: Turkey’s national security

The Heat

heat 2

Bomb blasts in Turkey’s capital left the country in a state of security turmoil. Will these attacks unify Turkey against a common enemy? Or is the nation headed into a new civil war?

After a deadly attack on its border this summer, Turkey entered the fight against ISIL, launching airstrikes and allowing a U.S.-led coalition to use its air base.
But now, Islamic State extremists may have brought terror to the capital of Ankara in two suicide bomb blasts, killing nearly 100 people and wounding hundreds more.

CCTV America’s Michal Bardavid joined The Heat from Istanbul.
