5 years ago today, the 2.5 year-long peace process between the Turkish state & the PKK ended.

Since then, tens of thousands have been killed & hundreds of thousands displaced.

The trigger was the unresolved and now unravelling assassination of 2 police officers [THREAD] Forensics at the house wher...
On the morning of 22 July 2015, officers in #Ceylanpınar police station, a town in Southeastern Turkey bordering Syria, grew suspicious after 2 of their colleagues who lived together didn't turn up to work. The officers went to their house but nobody answered the door.
When they entered with the help of a locksmith, they found their colleagues shot dead.

At around 11:00 am the news broke.

At 13:50, the PKK posted a press release endorsing the killings as a revenge for the ISIS #Suruç bombing which happened 2 days before in the same province.

What are #Erdogan’s strategic choices, if loses elections (which he won’t unless opposition includes #HDP support):
1) Resign peacefully & wait for opposition to implode (it certainly will)
2) Declare “national [milli] democracy” to stay indefinitely, citing external enemies +
+ If #Erdogan loses and chooses to resign peacefully, he’ll be at an advantage in the long run. Opposition seems united at the moment (a generous assessment), but coalition members will lose their heads if they win & turn against each other instantly. So... +
+ So, even if Erdogan loses, coalition members won’t be able to keep it together, simply because they come from very different positions, & given nuances of the election system, each will claim victory belongs to them. PLUS: economy is tanking, they’ll have to deal with the mess+
