Non-Sarcastic Good News: 21 Turks Killed in Afghanistan

Turkey has arrested dozens and dozens of al Qaeda sympathizers in the last few years. But is it doing anything to stop the flow of Turks into the war zone to fight for the Taliban or other violent Islamists? My guess is the answer is no:

A jihadist media outlet that supports Turkish terrorists fighting along the Afghan-Pakistan border said that 21 of its fighters were killed in a US airstrike in Afghanistan, while another fighter was killed in a drone strike in North Waziristan, Pakistan. All of the Turkish fighters who were killed were linked to the Haqqani Network.
