Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said a military coup attempt is currently underway and that military action has been taken without a chain of command.
Turkey is a strategic location for all of Europe. If this is true it has massive implications for NATO. It raises flying implications for the United States military using Turkey as an Air Force base for military jets to take off. The US is not supposed to get involved in a Military coup. There will be meetings between the President and his military cabinet of higher directors assessing the implications for the United States and other NATO countries. It is confirmed that Social Media has been shut down in Turkey. There would also be economical implications regarding shipping in the South end of Turkey.
This is a developing story: Military jets and helicopters have been seen flying low over Ankara and tanks reported in the streets, as two major bridges in Istanbul are closed to traffic.
From ISIS standpoint ISIS likes the instability to take advantage of this and cause more destruction. There have been 14 ISIS terrorists attacks within the year in Turkey.
With only a few hours into this situation there are no final answers at this time.
