TURKY JOINS HANDS WITH US TO ATTACK ISIS
The government of Turkey will allow US aircraft to launch air strikes against the Islamic State (ISIS) from the Incirlik air base in southern Turkey , according to the report.
“The United States and Turkey have decided to further deepen cooperation in the fight against ISIS ,” John Kirby, a spokesman for the State Department, said in a statement. He added that Washington would work with Turkey and other European partners to curb the flow of foreign jihadists to Syria, recognizing that “the problem of foreign fighter is not only Turkey’s problem.”
The Turkish Army bombed ISIS positions in Syria on Thursday, after a Turkish soldier was killed by shots fired from an area controlled by fighters of this radical jihadist group. Turkey shares a 800-kilometer border with Syria, and one of its southern regions borders directly on territory controlled by the Islamic State.
