This evil organization will stop at nothing to complete their jihad. Even if that means robbing kids of their lives. ISIS needs to be wiped out.
A suspected Islamic State child suicide bomber massacred at least 50 wedding guests dancing in a Turkey street.
President Tayyip Erdogan blamed the murders on Islamic State and said the killer, who wore an explosive belt, was between the ages of 12 and 14.
The sickening attack is the deadliest bombing this year in Turkey, which faces threats from militants at home and across the border with neighbouring Syria.
The country’s President Tayyip Erdogan said militants had carried out the late-night attack Gaziantep on Saturday.
The local governor’s office said in a statement 50 people were killed in the bombing, and more wounded were still being treated in hospitals around the province.
“The celebrations were coming to an end and there was a big explosion among people dancing,” said 25-year-old Veli Can.
“There was blood and body parts everywhere.”
Blood stains and burns marked the walls of the narrow lane where the wedding party was attacked while women in white and checkered scarves cried sitting crosslegged and waiting outside the morgue for word on missing relatives.
At least 12 people were buried on Sunday, but other funerals would have to wait because many of the victims were blown to pieces and DNA forensics tests would be needed to identify them, security sources said.
The pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party, or HDP, said in a statement that the wedding was for one of its members, and women and children had been among those killed.
