Earlier the Pentagon said that all military operations in Incirlik airbase are suspended.

Today the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey Mevlut Cavusoglu said that several soldiers from the NATO air force base in Incirlik were involved in plotting a coup in the country.

As a reminder, earlier the power supply to the military base was cut and entrance blocked by the decision of the Turkish authorities, and the American Consulate recommended that US citizens temporarily refrain from visiting it.
