Saudi Arabia stations warplanes at Turkish airbase
Saudi Arabia has deployed its combat aircraft at Turkey's Incirlik airbase near the Syrian border, Sputnik International reported.
Last week, Riyadh said it stood ready to deploy ground troops to Syria to fight the "Islamic State" (Daesh) jihadist group.
Saudi warplanes were stationed at the Incirlik airbase in Turkey to take part in the international coalition against the "Islamic State", said Brig. Ahmed Asiri, Al Arabiya reported.
He said the number of fighter jets used in the mission would depend on "objectives outlined by the coalition."
"Saudi aircraft in Turkey are not part of any bilateral agreement, but are within the framework of anti-terrorist actions of the international coalition," he stressed.
The Incirlik base is 5 miles north of the Turkish city of Adana near the Syrian border.
