After the terror attack in Istanbul on the new year’s eve, CHP congressman Tuncay Ozkan reminded everyone about the threat ISIS had made on November regarding Istanbul University. Ozkan’s tweet was spread through the social media by the student communities.
Ozkan asked the ruling AKP if they had seen the propaganda picture ISIS had posted online. In the picture, entrance of the university is seen distinguishably clear, making it a valid ISIS threat against a spesific target. Ozkan also expressed his concerns about the timing of a possible terror attack, saying that the university was currently having a finals week, and the active student population was at its highest because of it.
Adressing the growing concern among its students, Istanbul University has stated that they have notified the security forces, and that the necessary measures were being taken.
