Turkish Official Wishes Death Upon Israeli Tourists Hurt In Jihad Attack

Update: Irem Atkas has been relieved of her duties, but she is merely echoing what Erdogan thinks.

From the Times of Israel:
An official from Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party was reportedly fired Saturday after saying she hoped Israeli tourists injured in Saturday’s deadly suicide bombing in downtown Istanbul had died.

Irem Atkas sent her ill-wishes over Twitter shortly after a bomb was detonated in central Istanbul, killing three Israelis and wounding 11 others, according to Turkish officials.
