The Anti-Turkish government Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) claimed to have killed two Turkish police officers on Wednesday in retaliation to the deadly attack that hit a bordering town with Syria two days ago.

Turkish security sources said two police officers were found dead with bullets in their heads in the town of Ceylanpinar on the borders with Syria.

Later on Wednesday, the PKK claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was carried out in retaliation of Suruc blast that left more than 32 Kurdish activists dead while they were preparing to deliver relief aid in the Syrian city of Kobani.

Investigations carried out after the explosion identified the bomber as a 20-year old Turkish student who has apparently been brainwashed and later recruited by the Islamic State.

The PKK accuses Turkish government of collaborating with ISIS against Kurds. Last month, Islamic State militants used Turkish territories to infiltrate into the Kurdish stronghold of Kobani.

Turkey has embraced an ‘open-door’ policy in dealing with the nearly 5-year long Syrian crisis by granting extremist fighter from across the world a safe access into Syria’s territories.

The rapidly growing rise of terror in the region and the gains recently made by the terror organization has spurred a telephone call between US President Barack Obama and Turkey’s Erdogan.

The two leaders discussed methods to further deepen their collaboration to fight the Islamic State. They also vowed to stem the flow of foreign fighters and secure Turkey’s border with Syria”
