The historic Ottoman tomb of Suleyman Shah, the 12th century grandfather to the founder of the Ottoman dynasty, along with the dozens of Turkish troops who protect it have been evacuated from its former position approximately 40 kilometers inside Syrian territory, while a new site is prepared some 200 meters inside Syria from the Turkish-Syrian border.
