Long criticized by its allies for taking too soft a line against militants, Turkey is taking firmer action against ISIS on the border with Syria after being shaken by attacks on its soil and the Paris assaults.Ankara is sealing its border to the militants who moved to and fro across the frontier during much of the four-year civil war in Syria and stepping up raids against ISIS suspects.On June 5, four people were killed in an attack on a rally of the main pro-Kurdish party in Diyarbakir while on July 20, 33 people were killed in a suicide bombing on activists in Suruc on the Syrian border.And in the worst attack in modern Turkey's history, 103 people were killed on Oct. 10 when two suicide bombers ripped through a crowd of peace activists in the capital Ankara.
