Via The War Files –  German DM Ursula von der Leyen announced today that the German Luftwaffe (Air Force) will continue to carry out airstrikes in Syria in October; after the relocation of German troops from the Incirlik base (Turkey) to Jordan. The exact dates of the relocation hasn’t been determined. However, the main goal is that “the transfer phase is as short as possible and that the safety of the troops is ensured,” Leyen said. On 7/June, Germany decided to withdraw its military from the Incirlik air base in Turkey after Ankara banned German lawmakers from entering. Turkey justified the move by citing Berlin’s decision to give asylum to Turkish soldiers after last year’s attempted coup.
