Turkish police used tear gas and water cannons to prevent a pro-Hamas Islamist mob from storming the Incirlik Air Base in Adana, which houses U.S. troops.
The mob was part of a protest organized by the IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation against America, Israel, and worked in support of Hamas.
Turkish President Erdogan openly supported terrorist organizations like Hamas, causing rising anti-American sentiment in Turkey. (Trending: Is It Time For Joe Biden To Drop Out Of 2024?)

“Hamas is not a terrorist organization, it is a group of mujahideen defending their lands,” Erdogan claimed.
“The main culprit behind the massacre unfolding in Gaza is the West,” he stated.
“Friends, it is wrong to throw rocks or do similar things because both the police and soldiers would want to go to Gaza and fight and they will go when the time comes,” said head of the IHH, Bulent Yildirim.
The pro-Hamas rally ultimately led to clashes with police outside the airbase.
The Pentagon’s European Command is devising safety protocols in response to the ongoing protests.
“The safety and well-being of our airmen, families and community remain the forefront of our concerns,” European Command spokeswoman 2nd Lt. Gaby Gocso said. “We urge all members to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities.”
Erdogan has continued to support Hamas and accused Western countries of creating a “Crusader War atmosphere” following a terrorist attack by Hamas in Israel. (Trending: CNN Poll Is Bad News For Biden)
