Turkey’s help in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant has broadened the reach of the coalition, Marine Corps Brig. Gen Kevin J. Killea, chief of staff of Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve, said today.
Killea spoke live from Southwest Asia to media members during a digital video conference, offering an update on CJTF-OIR operations in Iraq.
Last week, Turkey began conducting anti-ISIL air strikes after its contributions were formalized as part of the CJTF-OIR process necessary for integrating coalition members into the fight.
