Turkish parliament approves troop deployment in Qatar

Turkey's parliament has approved a legislation allowing its troops to be deployed to a Turkish military base in Qatar, Al Jazeera reports.

The bill, first drafted in May, passed with 240 votes in favour, largely with support from the ruling AK Party and nationalist opposition MHP.

Wednesday's decision is an apparent support for Qatar as it faces diplomatic and trade isolation from some of the biggest Middle Eastern powers.
