US issues security alert on hotels in southern Turkey
The consulate in southern Adana province said on its website that “it has obtained specific and credible threats of potential terrorist activity targeting US-branded hotels in Adana.”
It advised US citizens in Adana “to exercise caution when patronising these establishments.”
Adana hosts Incirlik air base – used by the US-led coalition for air strikes against the Islamic State group in Syria.
The US embassy last week warned of the risk of a terror attack in another Turkish city of Gaziantep close to the Syrian border on businesses frequented by Westerners, including the popular coffee chain Starbucks.
