Ayhan Altun/Getty Images(ADANA, Turkey) — In addition to a warning from the U.S. State Department about traveling to southeastern Turkey, the U.S. Consulate in Adana has a new security message for Americans.
The consulate said in a statement it had “obtained specific and credible threats of potential terrorist activity” against U.S. hotels in Adana, a major city in southern Turkey.
“U.S. citizens in Adana are advised to exercise caution when patronizing these establishments,” said the statement.
Some of the U.S.-branded hotels in the city include the Sheraton Grand Adana and the Adana HiltonSA. Adana is also home to the Sabancı Central Mosque, the largest mosque in Turkey.
The State Department continues to warn Americans about avoiding “travel to southeast Turkey and carefully consider the risks of travel to and throughout the country.”
