Turkey ready for anti-IS strikes: Pentagon

This August 9, 2015 US Air Force photo shows an F-16 Fighting Falcon departing Aviano Air Base, Italy enroute to Incirlik Air Base, Turkey, in support of Operation Inherent ResolveTurkey is now ready to fully participate in coalition strikes against the Islamic State group and may do so within days, the Pentagon said Tuesday. Department of Defense spokesman Peter Cook also said Washington has “no indication” the Turkish government had tipped off an Al-Qaeda affiliate group to help them go after US-trained Syrian rebels, as alleged in one report citing rebel figures. The agreement with Turkey will incorporate Turkish planes into the “air tasking order” — or ATO — to ensure Turkish operations do not interfere with the operations of the coalition of countries targeting the IS group.
