STUTTGART, Germany — U.S. military operations against the Islamic State group out of Turkey’s Incirlik Air Base came to a halt Saturday afternoon as the Turkish military closed the airspace around the base following an attempted coup, a Pentagon spokesman said.
Power also was cut to the base and the U.S. was restricting movements of its personnel as base security was raised to the highest level.
