Turkey's parliament responds to attack by Syria


Turkey’s parliament has voted by 320 to 129 in favour of authorising foreign military operations for a period of one year.

The move comes following an attack by Syria on the town of Akcakale on Wednesday that killed five civilians. In response, the Turkish artillery has fired at the Syrian town of Tel Abyad.

The government headed by Prime Minister Erdogan said that the Syrian military had launched aggressive action against Turkey in recent weeks which presented “additional risks” the country’s security.
