Turkey’s parliament to vote on sending troops to Libya

Turkey’s parliament is to vote Thursday on whether to send Turkish troops to Libya, to back the government in Tripoli that is battling the Libyan National Army seeking to liberate the country’s capital from Islamist militants and armed groups.

The Turkish lawmakers are expected to approve the motion at the emergency session called for later in the day, and grant a one-year mandate for the deployment, despite concerns that Turkish forces could aggravate Libya’s conflict further and destabilize the region.
