Turkey’s army has ordered the country’s troops stationed in neighboring Iraq to withdraw immediately from that country and return to garrisons in Turkey, media reports said.

The Turkish army’s decision came in the wake of the failed military coup in Turkey, the Arabic-language media outlets reported.

The Turkish army had sent hundreds of its troops to a military base in Northern Iraq.

Following dispatch of Turkish force to Northern Iraq, the Iraqi government and people voiced their opposition.

The Iraqi government also filed a complaint at the United Nations against the Turkish government.
