“Terrorists or other hostile forces” could possibly capture dozens of US nuclear weapons housed in a Turkish air base near the Syria border, AFP cited a Washington-based think tank as warning Monday.

 

Turkey, which has NATO’s second-largest military, allows the United States to use the Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey to launch attacks against Islamic State militants.
