But if the Islamic State became enemy No. 1 in Turkey, the government’s stance could open up a more direct assault.
“It’s mutually assured destruction,” said Aaron Stein, Nonresident Fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East. “If ISIS attacks Turkey, they are going to provoke a disproportionate response.”
