MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Saturday that several servicemen at Incirlik Air Base were detained on coup attempt links in a result of the ongoing special operation.

 

Cavusoglu told Reuters that Turkey would continue its fight against the outlawed in Russia and numerous other countries terrorist organization Daesh as soon as the operation at the base is over.

The coup attempt was suppressed by early Saturday, with Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim stating that all coup supporters were identified and would be apprehended as the country was returning to normal life.

Over 180 people were killed and 1,470 were injured during the events, while nearly 3,000 people have already been detained, according to the prime minister.

 

U.S. Troops at Turkish Air Base on Highest Force Protection Level

U.S. troops at Turkey’s Incirlik air base were at the highest force protection level, known as “condition Delta,” after power was cut off at the base and the Turkish government closed the airspace around the site in the hours following a foiled military coup attempt, a U.S. official told ABC News today.

Turkish officials told ABC News they believe Turkish planes docked at Incirlik Air Base took part in Friday night’s coup attempt, which is why the site is locked down.

Turkey allows the United States to use the air base for operations associated with its air campaign against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

There are 2,200 U.S. personnel in Turkey, including 1,500 stationed at Incirlik.

A Pentagon spokesman said the loss of commercial power to Incirlik has not affected operations because the U.S. facilities there are operating on internal power sources. U.S. officials are working with their Turkish counterparts to resume air operations at the air base. All U.S. government personnel in Turkey appear safe and secure, he added.

“Turkish government has closed its airspace to military aircraft, and as a result air operations at Incirlik Air Base have been halted at this time,” Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook told ABC News. “In the meantime, U.S. Central Command is adjusting flight operations in the counter-ISIL campaign to minimize any effects on the campaign.”

A faction of the Turkish military took over state TV, imposed martial law and a curfew and attacked the police headquarters in the capital of Ankara on Friday night. The Turkish government declared the attempted military coup over Saturday morning.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said 161 people were killed in the overnight coup attempt and 1,440 people were injured.

Access denied, power cut at Turkey base used by US

An air base used by the United States forces in the alleged war on the Daesh terrorists has lost its electric power while local military authorities have closed movement in and out of it, says the US consulate in Adana.

In a statement released on its website on Saturday, the consulate called for avoiding the Incirlik airbase, located in the city of Adana in southern Turkey.

The statement followed a failed coup against the government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan late on Friday.

“Be advised that local authorities are denying movements on to and off of Incirlik Air Base,” it read. “The power there has also been cut.”

It further called on everyone to “avoid the air base until normal operations have been restored.”

The consulate added that the Adana airport had been reopened but “flights to and from Istanbul and Ankara remain suspended.”

A pentagon spokesman voiced hope earlier in the day that the air base could resume its activities as soon as possible.

The closure has reportedly halted airstrikes by US planes allegedly to target Daesh Takfiris in Syria and Iraq.

According to US Secretary of State John Kerry, the attempted coup has not influenced Washington’s cooperation with Ankara within NATO or the coalition against Daesh.

More than 160 people died while nearly 1,500 others sustained injuries during the coup attamp, described by Prime Minister Binali Yildirim as a “black stain on Turkish democracy.”

One response to “NATO Nuclear weapons base under siege in Turkey

  1. HOT TIPS

    -This was a coup in Saudi Arabia/Clinton/Obama operation to solve the problem of Erdogan and clean up all evidence of US involvement in the training of death squads and many other war crimes in Syria and Iraq by eliminating witnesses.

    -This was necessary because Erdogan is preparing to move to the other side and he’s going to tell all. All.

    -The US provided the “rebels” with the real-time information about the location of Erdogan, allowing them to kill him in an airstrike, but something went wrong. They openly used Incirlik to guide and refuel the F-16 fighter jets dropping bombs.

    -The evidence cooperation of the conspirators is still in the air base, and the CIA and SOF “advisers” who led the coup. Erdogan threatens to arrest them.

    -Russian nuclear forces are in high alert because of the possibility of nuclear weapons falling into unknown hands.
