Turkey’s territory in Syria, in Suleyman Shah tomb and police station, it was made an operation with 50 tanks in the morning. 40 soldiers were brought with Turkey Military Special Forces’ operation to Turkey, one soldier lost his life. Soldiers before leaving the area during the operation, blew up the tomb with explosives, and they brought 3 sarcophagus from the tomb to Turkey. It was reported that the tomb have been destroyed because of the tomb not capturing by the ISIS.
News seems like a heroic story. However, there are sub-texts, the world isn’t aware. Region of the tomb of Suleyman Shah is single land, which the 92 years-old Republic of Turkey owned land outside the Anatolian territory. And this has been protected by international treaties.
Turkish troops in here have been changed every six months. About 6 months ago opposition deputies in Turkey assemble, gave parliamentary questions about why troops didn’t exchange.
AKP government could not give a satisfactory answer to this question. Opposition Turks were worried about the lives of these soldiers. After the 11 months silence, the military operation was made. What was changed at 11 months? And what was changed that Republic of Turkey lost a land into the first time in its 92 years history. The answer is hidden at the imperialism.
Tragicomic sides of this event, AKP and Recap Tayyip Erdogan wish and take as aim to resurrection of Ottoman Empire. And while they are trying to do this, they do not hesitate to destroy the tomb of the ancestor of Ottoman’s founder. It seems that they try to resurrection the collapse period of the Ottoman Empire.
