Erbil (IraqiNews.com) Turkish Airlines has cancel led all flights to Arbil, capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, until further notice due to security concerns, a spokesman said on Twitter on Friday.

Terrorists from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant have advanced to within a half hour’s drive of Erbil, prompting a U.S. air strike on Friday, the first such intervention since American troops pulled out in 2011.
