The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militant who attacked Istanbul’s Reina nightclub “definitely” got help from inside the nightclub, a former deputy head of the National Intelligence Agency (MİT) has claimed. He also said such attacks showed serious deficiencies in Turkey’s Intelligence and police agencies. According to him, the militant walked around the streets with a bag that drew attention and was able to arrive in Reina by passing through various check points. The work of the police and Intelligence was significant, but there were gaps and shortcomings. This militant was able to see that gap and carry out the attack. It’s highly probable that it was an ISIL attack, but when you examine ISIL’s emergence in the Middle East it is an open question whether there are possible foreign services connections.
