A new batch of Turkish soldiers has arrived at Turkey’s military base in Qatar as part of a joint defense agreement between the two countries.
Qatar’s defense ministry announced on Tuesday the arrival of the fresh reinforcement at the Al Ubeid airbase in the capital, Doha.
The group, including soldiers from the Turkish Joint Forced Command, will join Turkish troops already based at the Tariq bin Ziyad military base in southern Doha.
The new arrivals will hold training with Qatar’s armed forces to boost joint military capabilities.
The first Turkish troop deployment to Qatar was in 2015.
