The last update i read said that 9 of the 10 who were killed are German tourists.. Killed by a Syrian suicide bomber. A little thank you to Germany for opening its borders to so many Syrian “refugees”.

I really think what you are seeing here is a tiff between who runs the caliphate , Al Baghdadi or Erdogan .
Police in Antalya have arrested three Russians accused of having connections with the terror group “Islamic State.” An anti-terror squad conducted the raid a day after a suicide bomber killed 10 people in Istanbul.
