According to the informatin of Aydınlık based on the military sources, the US brought a search and rescue plane to the US İncirlik base in Adana.

According to the information, Turkish Army wants the base to be used just for the unarmed UAVs.

An army official speaking to Aydınlık said "The US came with new demands regarding İncirlik. They wanted İncirlik to be made a center of operations. They also demanded to use İncirlik for armed UAVs. Turkish Army opposed their demand and reported that this can pose a risk for Turkey. The US's demand was rejected with Turkish Army's certain stance."

Mosul operation and training Peshmarga forces

Unnamed military official stated the following regarding the training of Peshmarga forces by Turkish Armed Forces: "The US did not demand for air or land support from Turkish Army. The US does not want Turkey to be in the war field. I think the US is anxious about Turkey's de facto engagement in the operation can pose a risk for their plans. Turkey is providing training to Peshmarga. However, this is not an extended training, just a defense training against the hand-made explosives."
