Turkey will establish a military base in Qatar as part of a 2014 mutual defense agreement aimed at combatting “common enemies,” Turkey’s ambassador to Qatar, Ahmet Demirok, said on December 16.
Demirok sad that some 3,000 ground troops, plus air and naval units, will be stationed at the base. It will be Turkey’s first overseas military installation.
The both countries, Turkey and Qatar, are supporting terrorist groups fighting to overthrow Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.
Both have condemned Russia’s military operation aimed to defeat ISIS in Syria.
