Turkey has agreed to allow the US military to launch air strikes against Islamic State militants from a US air base in Incirlik, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday, citing defense officials.

Local media in Turkey said an agreement was finalized late on Wednesday, but Reuters could not immediately confirm the report. The White House said President Barack Obama and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan spoke on Wednesday, but it declined to say whether they had reached an agreement on the air base..
