Turkish media say Saudi Arabia, Turkey may strike in Syria

ISTANBUL – Turkey’s foreign minister says his country and Saudi Arabia may launch ground operations against the Islamic State group in Syria, Turkish media reported Saturday.

After taking part at a security conference in Munich, Mevlut Cavusoglu said Saudi Arabia was “ready to send both jets and troops” to Turkey’s Incirlik air base, Saturday’s edition of the Yeni Safak pro-government newspaper quoted him as saying. “Turkey and Saudi Arabia may launch an operation (against ISIS) from the land,” he added, the paper said. Cavusoglu did not specify the number of troops or jets, or the timing of a possible Saudi deployment, but said exploratory visits have been made.
