(SALEM, Ore.) - During a meeting with some senior US military commanders, Turkey's Recep Erdoğan is said to have agreed to U.S. requests to use the Incirlik Air Base for military operations in Syria and Iraq.

According to the documents released by a high-ranking Turkish military officer, Turkey agreed to allow the U.S. to use air bases there.

In return, commanders have pledged to provide Turkish government with all information and news about Kurds' activities in Syria, Iraq and Kurdistan Region especially collecting information on PKK's (Kurdistan Workers' Party) activities along with some information on their military weapons.

It is noteworthy to say that one of the reasons that the Turkish army could target PKK bases was that U.S. troops and military officials in the Kurdistan Region provided the Turkish army with detailed information.
