JewishPress Logo

Given the rapid military progress across the country by the Al Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq in the Levant (ISIL) terror organization, Turkey has evacuated its staff from the city of Basra, located in southern Iraq.

Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu announced Tuesday via a tweet on his Twitter account that the staff had safely crossed the Iraqi border into Kuwait.

No further details were released in the announcement.
