Commercial electric power was restored to Incirlik Air Base in Turkey on Friday, US European Command officials said.
The base was without power since July 16, and was operating on backup generator power, officials said. Generated electric power capability will be maintained for the base should the commercial electricity be interrupted again, officials added.
Meanwhile, there is a steady flow of hot food, water and fuel to support U.S. service members and civilians in Turkey, officials said.
The United States, in close coordination with the Turkish military, will continue to work towards ensuring that the Incirlik base, the US service members who live and work on it, and the operations occurring there remain fully prepared to take on a myriad of missions as part of efforts to defeat terrorism, officials said.
