Unconfirmed reports out of Turkey suggest all entrances to the air base have been blocked by heavy vehicles and police sent to secure its peremiter.
The unusual nigh-time move sparked rumours of a second coup attempt on Turkish social media.

WNU Editor: There are a lot of conflicting reports with this story. There is also no coverage from the European and American press on this story. The Turkish Minister for European Affairs has remarked that this is just a "safety inspection" .... but what is interesting about this "safety inspection" is that it is occurring hours before US Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Joseph Dunford is suppose to arrive at the base. Intimidation. Sending a message. I let you be the judge on why this is happening.
