“The attack on Europe's third-busiest airport was the deadliest in a series of suicide bombings this year in Turkey.”

The same week that saw Israel and Turkey reach an agreement to normalize relations between the two nations, the largest Turkish airport has been struck by the latest international terror attack. The Jerusalem Post reports that three terrorists attacked Istanbul Ataturk Airport, killing 41 and wounding 239:

Turkish investigators pored over video footage and witness statements on Wednesday after three suspected suicide bombers opened fire and blew themselves up in Istanbul's main airport, killing 41 people and wounding 239.

The attack on Europe's third-busiest airport was the deadliest in a series of suicide bombings this year in Turkey.

President Tayyip Erdogan said the attack should serve as a turning point in the global fight against terrorism, which he said had "no regard for faith or values".

One attacker opened fire in the departures hall with an automatic rifle, sending passengers diving for cover and trying to flee, before all three blew themselves up in or around the arrivals hall a floor below, witnesses and officials said.

Please join The Fellowship in prayer for the victims and their families during this difficult time.
