TURKISH PRESS REVIEW on SEPT. 20

The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.

On Friday, Turkish dailies cover an armed attack due to blood feud in Mardin, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's remarks on Syria motion and Al Qaeda's capture of a town along Syria-Turkey border, Turkish international soccer player Arda Turan's signing of a new contract with Spain club and Trabzonspor's away game victory over a Greek Cypriot opponent, and an initiative to solve unidentified murders.

“Massacre with a blood feud” is SABAH's front page headline to report on Mardin killings. The daily reports that due to land dispute, Mehmet Ipek and Abdulkadir Suer killed two men from Erkan's family, and feared of a blood feud those families migrated to another town. However, the house that Ipek's family lives in was sabotaged last year and one child was killed. Mehmet Ipek's wife Emine visited his jailed husband yesterday, after the visit Mrs. Ipek and his three children were killed by masked men. HURRIYET daily uses “Massacre with mask,” MILLYET daily prefers “Down your feud.”

Turkish dailies also covered Turkish PM Erdogan's remarks on the Syria motion and the clashes between Free Syrian Army and Al Qaeda and the capture of a town close to Syria-Turkey border. Some dailies report that the content of the motion on military precautions against Syria abroad can be changed or can remain the same. ZAMAN daily uses headline as “Motion will be at the parliament on October 4.” Meanwhile, Turkish dailies cover the capture of a town along Syria-Turkey border by militants close to Al Qaeda. HURRIYET uses “Al Qaeda on border,” ZAMAN reports Ankara is concerned by this development. “If the group insists on trying to capture towns controlled by Free Syrian Army, Ankara will toughen its stance,” diplomatic sources told the daily.

“41 Million Euro” titled daily HURRIYET and reported Arda Turan's new contract with Spain's Atletico Madrid. The daily reports that Arda Turan became the most valuable soccer player among Turkish players. YENI SAFAK uses “First direct flight after 39 years,” to report Trabzonspor's away game victory over a Greek Cypriot club in Limassol.

“A thousand case for every prosecutor” is the headline by ZAMAN daily to report an initiative to solve unidentified murders in East and Southeast regions of the country. “Prosecutors investigated every case and talked with relatives of victims to fill gaps in each case,” the daily reports.

DUNYA daily says domestic consumption contributed 150 billion TL to Turkey's budget. “Domestic consumption that became a driving force for growth played a significant role in balancing the budget through indirect taxes,” says the daily.
