Abstract: Ion tearing mode instability of the forced current sheets is studied. The trapped electrons have a strong stabilizing effect on the excitation of the instability. The presence of background turbulence can effectively lead to the untrapping of the electron orbits and, thus, facilitate excitation of ion tearing instability. Respective scenarios for magnetospheric substorms, solar flares and coronal transients are discussed
