A Turkish lawmaker has claimed that a number of Turkish tanks have reportedly entered into northern Syria to protect the Turkish property that was said to be facing a possible attack by Islamist radicals.
National Movement Party (MHP) I?d?r deputy Sinan O?an said on his Twitter feed early on Sunday that Turkish army crossed into Syria and entered into the tomb “without any incident or a skirmish.” He claimed that the army is now in full control over the tomb, which is situated in a territory considered as a Turkish land.
