Turkish police have detained a suspected ISIS terrorist who was allegedly planning a drone attack on US aircraft at Incirlik air base in southern Adana province.
A Russian national identified as Renat Bakiev was reportedly detained in the southern Turkish city of Adana over suspicions that he planned to crash an American aircraft at the base using a drone.
He was also planning to carry out attacks on Alevi associations and citizens in the city, a statement by the police said.
Recently in June, Adana counterterrorism police captured 11 ISIS suspects, including what the media called the Adana "emir" of ISIS, identified as 32-year-old Turkish national Abdulkerim C. for planning to carry out a truck bombing at the base.
The US Air Force uses Incirlik air base, near Adana, as a staging post for the air campaign against ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
