A military aircraft stands on the runway at Incirlik Air Base, in southeastern Turkey, on July 28, 2015The United States on Wednesday carried out its first air strike on an Islamic State target in Syria after taking off from a Turkish air base, as Turkey vowed it was ready to step up its own fight against jihadists. “A US drone today carried out one air strike in Syria near Raqa,” a Turkish official told AFP, referring to the town in northern Syria that the IS group sees as its capital. The drone had taken off from Turkey’s southern Incirlik air base, which Ankara has now opened to the US military for armed attacks on IS targets in Syria just 200 kilometres (125 miles) away, the source added.
