A massive fire has erupted near a NATO base within the Buca district, Izmir, western Turkey. Authorities are investigating a possible act of sabotage, local media reports.
The inferno started on Sunday evening on the border of the Sahintepe and Mevkiinde districts. The fire engulfed the grassy wooded area and is spreading closer to NATO’s military base because of strong winds.




In a surprising twist, local authorities are investigating the fire as a possible act of anti-American sabotage.

The fire erupted shortly after Erdogan's leading Islamist paper headline officially targeted a US commander as coup leader adding his name & picture, in what local commentators dubbed as an "all out war" by Erdogan on the US.

I guess this means an escalation is not far away anymore.

Looks like Erdogan is creating an enemy out of his former masters as a way to further cement his power to me.

Certainly wouldn't be the first time.

He's playing a very dangerous game. He can't go running to Russia to beg for help if the US gets tired of his crap. Russia has no love for the Turkish Islamist Regime.

There is apparently something happening at the base at this moment.




TURKEY has sent police to surround the Incirlik air base it operates with the United States — and where a large stockpile of NATO nuclear weapons is held — ahead of a visit by a senior US official tomorrow.

1,000s Turkish forces surround NATO’s Incirlik air base for ‘inspection’ amid rumors of coup attempt

At midnight an inspection?

So far, not much is clear but a routine inspection does not go hand in hand with many dump trucks, tractors, other heavy equipment and a small army.
There is more to this than what is being said, i don't trust it a bit.

Turkish authorities restored access to and from a key air base used in operations against Islamic State militants, local media reported on Sunday, one day before the U.S. top military official is scheduled to visit the country.
