Commander of Air Base Holding US Nukes Arrested After Turkey Coup Attempt
The Turkish prosecutor's office with police are conducting searches at the Incirlik base.

On Saturday, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said that Turkish airspace was closed due to the coup attempt in the country. US media reported that the Incirlik base in southern Turkey has been left without electricity and local authorities prevented movement to and from the base. Air operations from the base have also been suspended.

On Sunday, the US-led coalition resumed flights from the Incirlik airbase.

The former commander of the base was accused by Ankara of involvement in the attempted coup. The United States rejected asylum application of Gen. Bekir Ercan Van.

In July 2015, Turkey agreed to open up Incirlik to US manned and unmanned aircraft to conduct anti-terror operations in Syria against Daesh.
