Report: Turkey To Allow U.S. To Launch Airstrikes

That’s according to two Obama administration officials who weren’t authorized to comment publicly and requested anonymity. The U.S. has been seeking permission for months for the U.S.-led coalition to use Incirlik as a launching pad. Turkey had been resistant to the idea amid domestic opposition. But in recent days, Turkey has been hit by a surge of violence blamed on ISIS-linked militants.
