The Turkish task force entered Syria through Kobane, the Kurdish town that was liberated recently after Kurdish forces launched an epic fight against ISIL who had occupied most of the town. On Sunday morning local time, the Saygi Station, which houses the tomb, was under control of Turkish armed forces. Prime Minister Davutoglu posted to Twitter this morning that all the tomb’s valuables, including historical remains, were delivered back to Turkey.
