ISIS video claims PM Modi and others working against Muslim interests

ISIS video claims PM Modi and others working against Muslim interests

Turkish officials said they are considering shutting down an air base being used by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies in a bombing campaign against the Islamic State over a disagreement about a lack of allied support for Turkey's own military campaign in the Middle East.

He said the Turkish people are wondering about the continued presence of USA forces at Incirlik, given that the U.S.is not supporting Turkey's most significant operation. "We would like to do everything we can to help Turkey in that effort", Cook said.

Turkey's prime minister said on Tuesday he expected the new US administration to halt supplying weapons to the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, saying the administration of President Barack Obama was responsible for such weapon supply.

"The entire world has been made safer by the operations that have been conducted there", Dorrian added.

"I think they are trying to make it look like something which is unambiguously centrally directed, rather than one just carried out by a supporter", said Mr Charlie Winter, senior fellow at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence at King's College in London.

The operation, which has already lasted four months, has transformed the equation in Ankara's approach to the group, making Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan an arch-foe of ISIS. "It's a very important base to the coalition and to the ongoing fight against Daesh".

"The Russian airstrikes came in support of the Turkey-backed groups as part of a recent agreement to intensify cooperation in the fight against ISIS", al-Jassim reported.

Juventus boss Massimo Allegri wants to replace Arsene Wenger in the summer
Theo Wolcott snapped a tie in the 53rd minute before Sanchez completed his brace in stoppage time to secure the three points. Arsenal came out triumphant in this season's reverse fixture and remain favourites with the same firm at ( 1.81 ).

The U.S. Air Force will neither confirm nor deny that nuclear weapons are stored at the base.

Rebels supported by Turkish troops have laid siege to al-Bab for weeks under the "Euphrates Shield" operation launched by Turkey almost four months ago to sweep the Sunni Muslim hardliners and Kurdish fighters from its Syrian border. The U.S. previous year withdrew military families from Turkey, and the State Department has also sent home non-essential personnel. Both the U.S. and Turkey have designated the PKK as a terrorist group but not the YPG, which only Turkey designates a terrorist group.

He also complained that the United States has failed to extradite Fetullah Gulen, the US-based cleric Ankara accuses of masterminding the failed July 15 coup, "despite Turkey's repeated requests".

A senior USA military official, speaking on background last month, said that the Turks "hate that we support" the YPG.

The fact that the US regards the PYD and YPG as partners in the fight against ISIS creates a dispute with Ankara, which designates the PYD and its military wing, the YPG as terror organizations due to their ties with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

Ibrahim Kalin told broadcaster Kanal 24 that Turkish officials had notified the US government of their concerns.
