Turkish Parliament members convene to vote on a motion submitted by the government seeking a green light for the use of Turkish troops in the neighbouring countries as well as for foreign forces to transit Turkish territory in operations against Islamic State (IS) jihadists, at the Parliament in Ankara on October 2, 2014. The debate comes after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan last week indicated Turkey was shifting its policy to take a more active role in the fight against IS militants, who have advanced to within a few kilometres of the Turkish border in northern Syria.
