Al Jazeera Round Table | | Politics, War & Conflict, Middle East, Turkey, ISIL

In the aftermath of the July 20  suicide attack in Turkey's southern town of Suruc on the Syrian border, the Turkish army engaged in a series of military strikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) as well as the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

Al Jazeera asked four Turkish political experts to share their assessment on Turkey's policy shift vis-a-vis the war on ISIL, following months of reluctance to militarily act against the group.

Is Turkey's new approach a tactical or a strategic move against ISIL?

Furthermore, what are the domestic repercussions of Turkish military incursions against the PKK, especially regarding the Kurdish peace process?
