Turkey has sent convoy to Syria to transport aid to the Turkish military post of Suleiman Shah Tomb, 25 kilometers from the Turkish-Syria border, World bulletin reported.
It was earlier reported, that Turkish forces have started an operation against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) near the tomb of Süleyman Shah.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan condemned this information.
“Right now, the issue is not about ISIL. The job of our convoy there is to transfer aid to the Süleyman Shah tomb. Our friends in charge are continuing the effort,”- Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced.
Later, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu also noted the military activity is a "routine change of duty" for the security of the Turkish troops at the tomb."
The tomb forms Turkish territory according to international law, and is currently under threat due to an increase in fighting between the Syrian opposition and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, in the area.
Note: The tomb is located 30km from the Turkish-Syrian border on the bank of River Euphrates. According to the 1921 Ankara agreement signed by Turkey and France, the tomb is a sovereign territory of Turkey in Syria. Gaining independence in 1946, Syria confirmed that the land belonged to Turkey. About 30 Turks guard it.
