PM Yıldırım Says Turkey Joined Air Strikes in Mosul Operation

Stacy Adams

binaliTurkey’s air force has been involved in coalition air strikes on the Iraqi city of Mosul, part of the US-backed operation to flush out ISIS, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Tuesday.

Turkey has been locked in a row with Baghdad about the presence of its troops at the Bashiqa camp in northern Iraq and over who should take part in the US-backed assault on Mosul. Turkey has trained up to 3,000 forces taking part but is concerned the operation could stoke sectarian tensions.

“Our Air Forces have also participated in air interventions in Mosul,” Yıldırım said.

He added that Turkey would do “everything necessary” against all kinds of threats and did not need permission from others.

Yıldırım also stressed that Ankara would respond if developments in Mosul lead to negative consequences against Turkey.

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
