Sharing is caring!

On August 26th, Pentagon in Washington made an announcement regarding Turkey which is ready to participate actively in coalition strikes against the Islamic State group within few days.

The terms of agreement with Turkey will enable Turkish planes into the “air tasking order” – or ATO – to ensure Turkish operations do not interfere and collide with the operations of the coalition of countries targeting the IS group.

“US and Turkey have finalised technical details forTurkey’s full inclusion in counter ISIL coalition operations. This includes full integration into the coalition air tasking order,” Cook said. “It could take a few days to put together these technical arrangements into place at the operational level. We believe that Turkey is committed to fully participating as soon as possible.”
