Turkish MPs to Debate Military Operation in Iraq, Syria

The parliament will hold an extraordinary session on Saturday to debate the extension of Turkish military’s operation in northern Iraq and Syria, according to ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party’s parliamentary group deputy chairman.

“The general assembly of Turkish Parliament will hold an extraordinary session on Sept. 23 at 1600 [4 p.m. local time] to debate the extension of Prime Ministry’s motion that enables the government to conduct cross-border operations in northern Iraq and Syria,” Mustafa Elitas said.

The motion had previously allowed the Turkish military to carry out cross-border operations from Oct. 2, 2016 until Oct. 31, 2017.

The deputies would either debate the extension of the same motion or they would bring a new motion enabling the Turkish army to conduct a cross-border operation in northern Iraq and Syria.
