The US has withdrawn its F-15 warplanes deployed to the Incirlik airbase in southern Turkey, the US European Command Headquarters EUCOM said Wednesday. The Air Force F-15 Eagles and Strike Eagles deployed to Incirlik are returning to RAF Lakenheath, UK, according to a statement. The six F-15Cs arrived November 6 and“conducted training and operational missions supporting Turkish allies and their sovereign airspace,” the military said. The six F-15Es followed on November 12 to conduct counter-Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) operations in Syria and Iraq as part of Operation Inherent Resolve. US Air Force A-10s, remotely piloted aircraft and other Coalition aircraft will remain at Incirlik conducting counter-IS missions.
