US war planes to fly from Iraqi air base: Pentagon

This US Navy handout photo shows sailors directing F/A-18E Super Hornets attached to the Fighting Black Lions of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 213 on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush on August 1, 2014 in the GulfUS combat aircraft will soon start flying out of a base in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq as part of a "more aggressive" air campaign against Islamic State jihadists, the Pentagon said Thursday. The use of Arbil air base reflects the broadening US offensive against the IS militants, though attack helicopters already have been flying out of bases in Iraq. Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby confirmed "armed and manned" US aircraft would fly from Arbil, capital of Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region, but declined to provide more details. American fighter jets and other war planes bombing IS militants in Iraq previously have been flying out of bases and from aircraft carriers in the region outside Iraq.


Kerry to visit Turkey to bolster campaign against Islamic State

Secretary of State John Kerry will visit Turkey on Friday as part of a tour of the Middle East to rally efforts to tackle the Islamic State militant group, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Thursday. Turkey is seen as a crucial if reluctant ally in the fight against Islamic State, which controls large parts of Syria and has seized territory in the oil-rich north of Iraq. Kerry will meet his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu, as well as Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and President Tayyip Erdogan during his two-day visit to the capital Ankara, the ministry said.
