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).

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