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.

    Nine-minute video shows 21 Kurdish fighters paraded through Iraqi streets
    – It echoes video released recently of a similar procession of prisoners
    – But in an abhorrent twist, the prisoners are then interviewed on camera
    – Then dragged from cages and forced to kneel in front of menacing militants
    – Ends with a haunting shot of an elderly man’s face, before cutting to black
