Turks wounded by attack by ISIS
ANKARA – Five Turks, including two soldiers, were wounded when fighters of the extremist ISIS fired mortar shells from northern Syria that landed in Turkey.
One of the grenades, according to the channel CNN Türk, landed right near the border post Mursitpinar, close to a group of journalists and Turkish security people. Another landed about 1 kilometer from the border with Syria near a refugee camp.
The offensive by ISIS against the Syrian city Kobani inhabited by Kurds has led to tens of thousands of Syrian Kurds crossing the Turkish border.

Nurse says she’s tired of treating ISIL terrorists
September 17, 2014, Wednesday, 16:39:43
A nurse who works at a private hospital in Mersin, a city and province on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, has told Turkish authorities and Parliament that she is sick and tired of treating members of the terrorist organization the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), which now calls itself the “Islamic State.”
The nurse, who was identified only by her initials, E.G., in a news story published by the Taraf daily on Wednesday, said of ISIL militants: “We treat them, and they go on to decapitate people. I am sick of treating wounded ISIL militants.” E.G. has also written a letter to Parliament and the National Police Department, saying she and her colleagues are extremely disturbed by the fact that they have to treat people “who chop off heads.”
Taraf reported that other health workers in Mersin and other provinces close to the Syrian border are uneasy about having to help wounded ISIL militants, who are responsible for extreme violence and bloodshed in northern Iraq and Syria.
In the letter she wrote to Parliament and the Police Department, E.G. said she has been employed at a private hospital in Mersin for a long time. She said her hospital has treated many wounded Syrians so far, who have introduced themselves as “opposition members.”
However, she noted that she had found out that most of the Syrians recently admitted to the hospital were ISIL members. “I was extremely distressed about this. I am very sorry about this situation. I am disturbed by the fact that these people are being treated in our hospitals while our people are being held by them,” she wrote, according to Taraf‘s report.
ISIL has been holding 46 Turks, and three consulate staff who are not Turkish citizens, as hostages for the past three months.
E.G. further wrote that she was “ashamed” to have played a role in the treatment of the militants. She also stated that the ISIL militants were checked into the hospital under fake names. She said an ISIL commander was treated at the hospital where she works in August. “The ISIL commander named Muhammet Ali R. who was admitted to our hospital on Aug. 7 was treated at room number 323. Many of his bodyguards kept watch around the hospital. Many other ISIL commanders like him and soldiers have been treated at our hospital, and returned to war after the completion of their treatment. I don’t want to help these people. I want you to inspect these hospitals. And I am referring the owners of the hospital and its management to God.”
US AIRCRAFT continued to bomb suspected Islamic State (Isis) positions in Syria today after President Barack Obama admitted to a “contradiction” in his policy on the Middle Eastern country: here.
