This event is by any means tragic. There is no compensation for those who were killed.However, there is to state that all sovereign nations would seize their rights to defend their borders. Just imagine what would happen if you wish to smuggle something in a group of 40 something into US or any other developed country.
This was no mistake...If it was a 'mistake', the Turks would compensate the injured parties..The Turks are copying NATO methods. Airstrike first. Apologize later...Now anyone crossing the Border is open game to a 'mistake'..
It is good new that the government of the Turkey admits his mistake.
It can happen because operation starts at night time.
The death of the people are doing the businesses of their survival.
Time is going to blame in this case.
