“There is reason to believe that the US Armed Forces command planned and during the period of last night and this early morning Moscow time the flight of the military transport aircraft C-17A Globemaster III with a cargo of nuclear weapons on board the route Kirtland air base (USA) – Inchirlik air base (Turkey),” the operational line experts said.

“According to some experts, nuclear weapons may be on board. The board has already been assigned the highest level of priority, and its non-stop flight is planned to be carried out with two refueling in the air,” they add.

It is noted that exactly the same flight, but on the route Turkey – USA, was performed by the same type of aircraft no further than March 18.

“On March 18, the United States Air Force S-17A Globemaster military transport aircraft flown across the Atlantic (callsign is on air“ Reach247 ”). The highest priority level of this aircraft and a number of other indirect factors, in particular its route from the Turkish Incirlik air base to Albuquerque airport , state of New Mexico, USA, where the Kirtland air base is located, allow us to believe that nuclear ammunition can be transported on board,” experts said.

EADaily has already reported that Turkey continues to use the ceasefire regime in the Idlib de-escalation zone, established on March 6 and still generally respected, to strengthen its military presence in northwestern Syria.

Over the past half-moon since the entry into force of the “silence regime”, hundreds of units of new armored vehicles, long-range howitzers, multiple launch rocket systems, and other military equipment and weapons have been sent to Idlib and Aleppo provinces. Columns with equipment, ammunition and personnel of the Turkish Armed Forces go to Syria almost daily.
