ISIS Releases Video Threatening Raids on Turkey; Calls Erdogan a "Traitor" for Letting US Use Bases

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has released a video threatening attacks on Turkey, describing its president, Recep Tayyib Erdogan, as an "infidel" and a "traitor" for opening the country's air bases to the United States to carry out airstrikes against it, the Euro News website reports today (August 18, 2015).

The video was uploaded onto a social media website and is believed by Reuters to be genuine.

The militants accuse President Erdogan of opening up Turkish airbases to "crusaders," allowing the United States to "bombard the people of Islam."

Six F-16 fighter jets arrived at a Turkish base last week and began flying missions against ISIS in Syria, which borders Turkey.
