In soldiers' rescue, Turkey plays off warring sides in Syria

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - By extracting dozens of its soldiers surrounded by Islamist fighters in Syria, Turkey has warded off a potential crisis and shown its ability to manoeuvre between rival warring parties, including Islamic State. Several hundred Turkish ground troops, backed by tanks and drones, mounted an eight-hour operation on Saturday night to evacuate the 38 soldiers guarding the tomb of Suleyman Shah, grandfather of the founder of the Ottoman Empire. The fact there were no clashes appeared to suggest that Islamic State fighters surrounding the site were either warned or coerced by Turkey not to try to disrupt the incursion, the first it has mounted since Syria's civil war broke out in 2011. #facebook #Brazil #Technology #Middle East #Russia #markets #Turkey #Mexico #author #opinion

Turkey's Erdogan says relocation of tomb in Syria not a retreat

ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey's military incursion into Syria to relocate a tomb surrounded by Islamic State militants and evacuate the soldiers guarding it was a temporary move to safeguard their lives and not a retreat, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday. The action, which involved tanks, drones and reconnaissance planes as well as several hundred ground troops, was the first of its kind by the Turkish army into Syria since the start of the civil war there nearly four years ago. "The Suleyman Shah tomb operation is not a retreat, it is a temporary move in order not to risk soldiers' lives," Erdogan said in a speech in the capital Ankara #Business #facebook #United States #China #France #Arabic #Russia #markets #Turkey #Latin America
