The Minister of defence of Germany Ursula von der Lyayen said that the German air force contingent taking part in the campaign against the terrorist group «Islamic state», leaves located in the Turkish base of Incirlik.
The Tornado aircraft engaged on reconnaissance flights over Syrian territory, 250 staff and technical capacity will be transferred to Jordan, at the base of Azraq.
According to the Minister, the agreement with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has already been achieved. The German air force flights over Syria have to stop for a few weeks. It is unclear whether transferred from Turkey here based tanker aircraft of the Bundeswehr.
The reason for the relocation was the protracted crisis in bilateral relations. The last straw was the refusal of Ankara to accept the delegation of the German Parliament.
Recall that when the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan was asked to comment on the possible withdrawal of German soldiers, he said that after receiving official news wish the Germans a happy journey.
