    Americans/allies including NATO and Israel encouraged/funded and armed all Turkish terrorists to commit crimes against humanity. These hyenas are still sheltered in Turkey and the whole world is turning a blind eye to their existence.
    All those responsible, including the American Administration for encouraging these Turkish controlled terrorists harm innocent civilians must be held accountable.
    Americans funded, armed and encouraged Turkey to allow these terrorists to get stronger, enter Syria/Iraq and kill/kidnap innocent civilians. Most of these terrorists’ weapons were supplies by US Administration and allies. Aiding and abetting (Accessory): Americans have helped (And still do) Turkey Loot Iraq/Syira including stealing oil.
    This recent attack was made possible by the weapons supplied by American to these terrorists.
