HomeWorld NewsWATCH: Fistfight breaks out in Turkish parliament after lawmaker lashes out at Erdogan over Idlib soldier deaths

Turkey’s parliament descended into a chaotic fistfight after an opposition lawmaker accused President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an of disrespecting Turkish soldiers killed recently in Idlib, Syria.

During a closed session about the country’s operations in Idlib, opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) member Engin Ozkoc said Erdogan disrespected the dead troops and had also acted irresponsibly by sending them into conflict without air cover.

The accusations quickly escalated into a huge brawl inside the chamber between government and opposition politicians, with punches thrown and lawmakers slapping and kicking each other.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a Turkish Parliamentarian, what would have really "chapped my grits" here, would have been that this was ordered by Edrogan, with absolutely zero parliamentary input or review, as to whether this military intervention in Syria was necessary, or was Edrogan writing checks (again)for his military misadventures in Syria, which his military were unable to cash.

That would have angered me greatly.

I do not know if Turkey's Constitution allows for snap elections, but were I a Turkish Parliamentarian, upset at his current geopolitical proclivities, I would want to see this happen, and right now.
