Turkey denied the U.S. claim made early Monday that it had approved the use of an air base to attack ISIS in Iraq and Syria. The country’s prime minister said no deal has been reached to let the U.S. use Incirlik air base, but talks are continuing. Turkish lawmakers recently passed a motion allowing foreign forces to use its bases. Turkey has agreed to train to “moderate” Syrian rebels, though. Turkey has been under increasing pressure to help as ISIS has moved into the strategic Syrian town of Kobani, near the Turkish border. The U.S. and its allies have been conducting airstrikes against ISIS there, but Ankara has been reluctant to get involved, and it has been criticized for letting its tank crews stand idly across the border while the town is besieged.
