Istanbul Terror Death Toll Rises to 41

Officials in Turkey now say that at least 41 people were killed during a terror attack at a large airport in Istanbul. At least 239 were injured and more than 100 of those remain in the hospital. Three terrorists opened fire on the Ataturk Airport yesterday, before detonating suicide bombs. Though no group has claimed responsibility for the attack, officials say that it has the signatures of ISIS terrorists.

Turkey has recently ramped up their own military efforts against ISIS and the terrorist group the PKK. The country also allows the U.S. military to fly over its airspace to conduct aerial attacks on ISIS strongholds in nearby Syria. Terror attacks by radical Islamic groups have become increasingly common in the country, with at least 140 being killed in a series of attacks this year.
