The Russian ambassador to Turkey, Andrey Karlov, has been assassinated at an art exhibit in Ankara by an individual now identified as a Turkish police officer.

The assassin, shouting, “Do not forget Aleppo!” and “Allahu akbar,” declared that the murder of the Russian ambassador was in retribution for Russian military support of President Bashar al-Assad’s forces, which recently retook Aleppo from ISIS.

This attack has all the signs of an ISIS-inspired or -ordered assassination. Russian officials immediately labeled the assassination a “terrorist attack,” unlike Barack Hussein’s administration which will likely term it “museum violence.”
