Reuters, July 27, 2010: Police fired tear gas to break up clashes between Turkish and Kurdish protesters in southern Turkey Tuesday after a deadly attack on police in the area fueled ethnic tensions. The fighting followed similar ethnic clashes in northwest Turkey a day earlier. The interior minister blamed provocateurs for the violence as Turkey prepares for a September referendum on constitutional reform and a parliamentary election next year. Monday evening gunmen in a van shot four Turkish police officers, opening fire on their vehicle in the town of Dortyol in the southern province of Hatay. While the identity of the gunmen was unclear, local suspicions appeared to be directed at Kurdish militants -- the shooting triggered clashes between Turks and Kurds. State-run Anatolian news agency said some of the protesters chanted slogans in Kurdish in support of the jailed leader of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) guerrilla group, which has recently stepped up attacks against security forces. Turkish protesters subsequently attacked and set fire to the local offices of the pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy party (BDP) and Kurdish workplaces in Dortyol, broadcaster NTV reported. In the wake of the attack on the police, Interior Minster Besir Atalay pledged to wipe out the presence of militants in the Amanos mountains of Hatay, near the border with Syria. "The governors, regional commanders and police are here... I say clear the Amanos (mountains). Do what you have to do," Atalay said at a ceremony for the dead police officers in the southern city of Adana Tuesday. Six soldiers were killed in a PKK rocket attack in the Iskenderun area of Hatay at the end of May. The clashes in Hatay came a day after Turks and Kurds rioted at Inegol in the northwestern province of Bursa after a quarrel in a coffee house. Five people were stabbed in that fight. Hundreds of people subsequently threw stones at the local municipality building, demanding that police hand over the attackers. They set fire to cars and set up barricades in clashes which continued through the night. "Civil war rehearsal," a headline in Taraf newspaper said of the clashes in Inegol - Turks, Kurds clash after deadly attack on police

The Daily Telegraph, September 14, 2010: Iran has agreed to donate $25 million (£16 million) to Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) in a move that will increase fears that Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan is preparing to abandon the country's secular constitution. Western diplomats say they are alarmed by reports that Mr Erdogan has negotiated a deal with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for Tehran to make a substantial contribution to the campaign funds of Turkey's leading Islamic party - Iran donates $25 million to Turkey's ruling party

CNSNews, February 11, 2011: Turkish President Abdullah Gul’s visit to Iran this weekend comes just days after reports said that Turkey has agreed to train the Syrian army. Turkey’s recent moves raise more questions about the direction being taken by the NATO member’s Islamist-leaning government. Gul will be accompanied by a 300-strong delegation of government ministers, officials and businessmen on a three-day visit to “further consolidate” bilateral relations, Iran’s Fars news agency reports. He is scheduled to meet with President Ahmadinejad, other ministers and the powerful parliamentary speaker, Ali Larijani - NATO Member Turkey Solidifies Its Ties with Iran and Syria

Voice of America, February 28, 2011: According to the Turkish Justice Ministry, in seven years the rate of women murdered has jumped 1,400 percent. In 2002, 66 women were murdered, in the first seven months of 2009 the number stood at 953. [...] Nearly every day you can read the latest report about a woman being murdered, invariably the murder will be of the most violent nature, be it with shotguns or knives, usually carried out by an estranged or former husband, or family members in a so-called honor killing - Turkey's Murder Rate of Women Skyrockets

Commentary Magazine, March 21, 2011: After assuring both Libyans and Turks that Turkey was not involved in airstrikes on Libya, Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç, of Turkey, said, “We wish that the United Nations had made such resolutions and countries had taken action in the face of incidents in Gaza, Palestine and the other regions.” While Namik Tan, Turkey’s ambassador to the United States, tries to assure Jewish groups that his government really isn’t anti-Semitic and anti-Israel, someone might want to ask him why his boss is calling for airstrikes on the Jewish state? And perhaps Senators Levin and McCain on the Senate Armed Service Committee might finally want to ask some tough questions about why the United States plans to give Turkey the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter replete with its stealth technology? - Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Calls for Airstrikes on Israel

Voice of America, September 2, 2011: Turkey has agreed to deploy an early warning radar system by the end of the year as part of NATO's missile defense program for Europe. It is aimed at countering the threat of missile attacks from Iran. Turkish military officials said Friday the technical negotiations of the deployment of the defense system in Turkey have reached the final stages. In Washington, the Pentagon welcomed Turkey's decision to take part in the project, which will initially rely on American naval ships equipped to knock out incoming missiles - Turkey Agrees to Host NATO Radar System

Reuters, September 24, 2011: The United States has agreed in principle to deploy U.S. Predator drones on Turkish soil to aid in the fight against Kurdish separatist rebels, Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said. The U.S. military flies unarmed surveillance Predators based in Iraq and shares images and vital intelligence with Turkey to aid Ankara as it battles Kurdish Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) rebels who have camps in northern Iraq. Erdogan, speaking to reporters in New York on Friday where he attended a U.N. General Assembly, said Turkey has offered to buy or lease the drones and that details are being worked out - U.S. to provide drones to Turkey: Erdogan

The report, published in the Taraf daily, said a total of four drones arrived at İncirlik Air Base on Oct. 16 and Oct. 23, several days before PM Tayyip Erdoğan discussed a Turkish request to purchase drones to be used in the fight against the terrorist Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) with US President Barack Obama on the sidelines of a G-20 summit in Paris - US deployed Predator drones at Turkey’s İncirlik base, says report
