By 9:39:00 PM

Istanbul- Attack at Istanbul's Ataturk International Airport causes at least 41 confirmed death tolls (as of writing) and 239 persons were injured as reported by CNN. According to Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildrim, three suicide bombers arrived at the airport in a taxi and blew themselves after opening gunfires.

The attack was first reported late Tuesday night (June 28,2016) at 10 p.m. Turkish officials stated that behind this attack were three Islamic State terrorists. Such act gathered uproars and statements that "terrorism strikes with no regards to faith and values". Two of the three bombers were at the international terminal while the third one was in the parking lot. Although the attackers were unidentified yet, there's a strong suggestion that they are foreign nationals as per Turkish official source to CNN.

Ninety-nine percent (99%) of the Turkey people are Islam. With ISIS cells everywhere in Turkey, you can't simply protect 100% an overwhelming airport like this which is the world's 11th busiest airport in terms of passenger traffic. A total of 8 bombings across Turkey have been reported this year, with this recent one having the highest casualties.
