Turkish Police Raid Incirlik Airbase

The Turkish police raided the Incirlik airbase where the US-led coalition's jets are based, local media reported.

Local newspaper, Hurriyet quoted informed sources as reporting that the Turkish prosecutor's office representatives, flanked by police forces are running search and investigation at the Incirlik base.

The development comes as the top commander of Incirlik air base was arrested by the Turkish police on Sunday after a coup attempt in the country ended in failure.

The Incirlik airbase's top commander, Bakir Ercan Van, was among the six thousand military and judiciary personnel arrested across Turkey on suspicion of involvement in the abortive coup.
