ADANA - Reuters
DHA photoThe U.S. Consulate in Adana warned Americans on Sept. 27 that it had received specific and credible threats of potential terrorist activity targeting U.S.-branded hotels in the southern Turkish province.
“U.S. citizens in Adana are advised to exercise caution when patronizing these establishments,” the consulate said in a statement on its website.
The warning did not name the hotels. Adana’s hotels include properties operating under the Sheraton and Hilton brands.
The city of Adana is about 16 km from the İncirlik Air Base, which the U.S. military uses to launch attacks against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants in Syria.
The State Department has also warned U.S. citizens to avoid travel to southeastern Turkey.
