Gunshots at the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul location and other attacks


A fire produced collapse of a part of the three-story building. Another police officer and two assailants were killed later in gunshots at the scene of explosion. The attacks occurred after the moment when Turkey decided to take  a more active role against Islamic state. Last month Turkey detained some 1,300 people suspected of links to terror organizations, including the PKK, IS and the banned far-left Revolutionary People’s Liberation Army-Front, or DHKP-C. On Sunday, the U.S. military announced that a detachment of six F-16 fighter jets and some 300 personnel have arrived at Turkey’s southern Incirlik Air Base to join the fight against IS militants.
