WASHINGTON (QHA) -

The US will deploy in Turkey its EA-6B Prowler carrier-based electronic warfare aircrafts, the US Department of Defense reports.

The deployment is planned to last through September, U.S. European Command officials said.

The aircrafts will provide aerial support to coalition aircraft and ground troops in the fight against ISIL by intercepting communications.

“The EA-6B Prowler will continue to do what it has for the past 45 years: support warfighters flying in the air and fighting on the ground by giving them the electronic communications dominance to ensure a decisive win,” a Eucom statement said.
