The Turkish Republic president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that it's obvious what Turkey will do if something happens with Shah Suleyman's holy. He also mentioned, that the statement about holy being surrounded is a fiction, Anadolu Agency reported Thursday.
Regarding to the statement of Republican People's Party (RPP) that they will vote against interposal of Turkish army into Iraq and Syria Erdogan mentioned, that it is not correct to comment statements based on party's members' opinions.

The terrorist organization calling itself the Islamic State (IS) was created in 2003 in Iraq. In 2004-2006, the organization was led by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and consisted of 11 radical Islamic groups, which had close ties to the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda.
Following the start of military confrontation in Syria between the armed opposition and the government forces, the terrorist organization penetrated the country in 2013. After this, the terrorist organization said it refuses to take the oath of Al-Qaeda and declared a jihad (a holy war) against all groups in Iraq and Syria, as well as the Syrian government forces.
Strengthening of the IS in Syria allowed it to return to Iraq, deploying military actions against government forces there.
In late June, the IS announced the creation of the "Islamic Caliphate" on the territories under its control in Iraq and Syria. In turn, Iraqi authorities asked international community for help in combating the IS.
