493rd Fighter Squadron deploys to Lask AB, Poland

Reuters

WARSAW, Feb 10 (Reuters) – American F-15 jets landed at a Polish air base on Thursday, Warsaw’s defence minister said, as NATO beefs up the military presence on its eastern flank amid tensions over a standoff between Ukraine and Russia.

The jets arrived as further U.S. and British troops were deployed in Poland, with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson also visiting the country in a show of solidarity.

The defence minister did not say how many F-15s landed at the base. American F-15 jets have also been sent to the Baltics.

British Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said on Thursday that London may send further troops to help support its allies in eastern Europe if required, after announcing the deployment of 350 troops to Poland on Monday.
