Turkish police officer Mevlut Mert Altintas assassinated Russia’s Ambassador to Turkey on Monday. Altintas shouted “Allahu akbar! Do not forget Aleppo! Do not forget Syria! Do not forget Aleppo! Do not forget Syria!” before murdering Andrey Karlov who was visiting an arts center. Altintas was gunned down at the scene of the crime. According to CNN, “The shooting occurred a day before diplomats from Turkey, Iran and Russia are scheduled to meet in Moscow to discuss the situation in the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo.”
On the same day in Berlin, Germany, a terrorist killed 12 people by driving a truck into a crowded marketplace. Reuters reports, “Forty-five people were injured, 30 severely.” Terrorist group ISIS claims the driver was one of their operatives.
