Israel’s intervention in the ongoing tensions in the Middle East has intensified again recently. Frequent bombings of Syria, the attempts to escalate the tension with Iran and similar interferences have come to the fore more often.
The U.S. President Donald Trump’s declaration to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is in parallel with such developments.
The tensions between Turkey and Greece are on the rise again. The Aegean issue, which has been used by the bourgeois governments of both countries against each other for decades, is becoming a point of crisis, after a relatively long period of silence.
The government is responsible for the bloodshed
The bomb attack in Ankara, in which students, workers, many innocent citizens lost their lives, is an attack to all of us, all the mankind.
The latest bomb attack in Istanbul, Turkey, has only added to the misery haunting the country and the region in recent years.
The ostensible culprit is again Daesh. A suicide bomber killed 10 innocent people, this time tourists visiting Istanbul.
Downing of a Russian fighter by the Turkish Armed Forces near the Turkish-Syrian border has added a new dimension to the bloody process that has been going on in Syria for the last several years. This new dimension, in which Turkey and Russia confronted each other, is in fact, a linear part of AKP's policies and their extreme point.
Blood policies must be abandoned
Around a hundred people lost their lives and many more were injured in a bomb attack that took place in Ankara, Turkey, before the demonstration that bore the slogan "Against War, Peace Now". This attack aims at terrorising not only the demonstrators but the whole society. The perpetrators try to make our people accustomed to terror and violence. Their aim is to make the people feel desperate and thus stay away from the streets.

The Peace Association of Turkey would like to inform the peace-loving forces and briefly share its views about the recent developments in Turkey.
On May 29, video footage of ammunition transport to the Islamist groups in Syria by the Turkish secret service agents was published. The Peace Association of Turkey made a statement regarding this footage.
1000 mortar projectiles, 1000 shells, 50,000 machine gun bullets, 30,000 heavy machine gun bullets!
We were not surprised, because it was not necessary to guess; we knew it.
