The United States Accused Of Creating Coup In Turkey
Angry military personnel, police officers and citizens of Turkey surrounded the NATO nuclear facility, Incirlik, last week. The facility is to be closed since this recent unrest has led to an extreme anti-American culture. Eminent danger is obviously a concern.
The Incirlik military base may be closed in Turkey soon. Local residents and community organizations express this requirement in the form of protests against the US. According to them, the tanker aircrafts at the NATO air base helped to fuel aircrafts involved in the coup attempt.

The police is vigilance in respect of anti-American actions. After the message that the coup was the control center of the Incirlik airbase, many non-governmental organizations, especially the Anatolian Youth Union (AGD) began to organize protests against the United States.

We demand cancellation of this agreement. We do not require a full closure of the base, but only for US aircraft and other foreign countries”, the chairman explained.
According to her, if the air base is not closed for the United States and other countries attacks will continue. “Our police, military and people will be attacked because Incirlik is the reason of all acts of terrorism.
