A terrorism expert has told talkRADIO that ISIS is most likely responsible for a huge suicide bomb attack in Gaziantep.
The bomber, believed to be between 12 to 14 years of age, killed 51 people at a Kurdish wedding party. Sixty-one people were injured in the blast and 17 are now in a critical condition. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said in a statement the bomber targeted the revelers as they danced in the street.
David Lowe, a former anti-terrorist unit detective, explains why he believes Isis is responsible.
"One problem is the group itself," he told Paul Ross. "Gaziantep is very close to the border with Syria. There's a large Kurdish population there, including the YPG (Syrian-Kurdish forces).
"They've made great gains against islamic state, so this could be a retaliatory attack by the group, they have a number of cells inside Gaziantep.
"They do use young people and foreign fighters for suicide bombings, who they've indoctrinated into their narrative. [The attack] has highlighted this point of how they use individuals regardless of age or even nationality.
"So to me, it makes sense they are responsible."
