The Turkish Parliament has passed a motion allowing the military to conduct cross-border raids into Syria.
Some 320 deputies cast votes in favor of the motion, while 129 voted against it.
The Turkish Parliament debated a cross-border motion brought by the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government, daily Hürriyet has reported.
Members of main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) and Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) have decided to vote against the motion following a group meeting in the early hours of the day, according to sources.
‘This motion will allow for a world war’
CHP member Muharrem İnce criticized the recent motion, saying it would enable the AKP to wage a world war.
“This motion has no limits,” İnce said. “You can wage a world war with [the motion].”
