Marxist group claims Istanbul US consulate attack

The Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C), an outlawed Marxist party, announced online that one of its female militants carried out Monday’s attack on the U.S. consulate in Istanbul, Deutsche Welle reports. The party issued a statement saying the U.S. is the chief enemy of the people in the Middle East and the world, and the DHKP-C’s struggle will continue until its homeland is cleared of U.S. bases. The attack came just after U.S. fighter jets arrived at Turkey’s Incirlik air base, where they are now stationed in the battle against ISIS.
