Turkey again locks down US airmen, jets, nuclear arms in Incirlik

Some 7,000 armed Turkish police with heavy vehicles have surrounded and blocked the Incirlik Air Base in Adana, locking in some 1,500 US air crew personnel for the second time since Turkey’s failed coup.

Pictures have emerged showing large trucks entering the airbase with the Turkish police subsequently closing the entrance and exit of the airbase, which also holds the US bomber fleet for attacking ISIS and the American tactical nuclear arsenal in the region

Rumors suggest the police were deployed to halt a suspected 2nd coup although this is unconfirmed for now.
