Parliament was scene to yet another physical fight on Aug. 4, which apparently erupted due to tension stemming from the government's policy regarding Iraqi Turkmens, Hurriyet Daily News reported.

During a General Assembly meeting, lawmakers from the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) eventually came to blows, leaving some deputies bleeding.

The tension erupted after he questioned why the government has not been lending support to Iraqi Turkmens, according to Oğan. Yet, the messages on his account were not less strong than the tension that led to deputies harming each other.
