One Turkish soldier was killed in an accident during the operation to evacuate troops from the Suleyman Shah tomb in Syria, two senior Turkish officials told Reuters.
The operation is now complete and Turkish soldiers have been successfully evacuated.
The Turkish military launched an operation into Syria on Saturday night to evacuate Turkish soldiers who were guarding the Suleyman Shah tomb, sources told Reuters news agency.
The Turkish government said late last year that Islamic State militants were advancing on the mausoleum, which is guarded by several dozen Turkish soldiers.
The tomb was made Turkish territory under a treaty signed with France in 1921, when France ruled Syria. Turkey regards it as sovereign territory and had repeatedly vowed to defend it from any attack by the insurgents.

The President of Turkey has vowed to punish attackers who stabbed and beat a woman to death when she tried to fight off a man trying to rape her, amid calls for the death penalty to be reinstated in response to the case.
Describing violence against women as the "bleeding wound" of the country, President Tayyip Erdogan said he would "go all out" to make sure the perpetrators were handed "the heaviest sentences".
The woman, named as 20-year-old Ozgecan Aslan, was travelling home on a minibus in Mersin province on February 11 when a man tried to rape her.
Reports state when she retaliated with pepper spray, he stabbed and beat her to death with an iron bar, before enlisting two others - believed to be his father and a friend - to help dispose of the body.
Three people, including a 26-year-old man, have been arrested.
The brutal killing has sparked protests across Turkey, with women nationwide wearing black and the hashtags #sendeanlat and #OzgecanAslan trending worldwide.
Some politicians have also spoken out to say they believe the death penalty should be reinstated.
An explosion hit an area near a Turkish police checkpoint in the southeastern town of Suruc, the private Dogan news agency reported.
The town is near the border with Syria and around six miles (10km) north of the Syrian town of Kobani, which was recently seized from Islamic State militants.
Some people were wounded but no numbers were immediately available.

A boat carrying suspected refugees from Afghanistan and Syria has sunk off the coast of Turkey, killing at least 24.
Turkish authorities say coastguard vessels, nearby fishing boats and divers are searching the area for more survivors. 24 bodies have been recovered, and seven people rescued. It is not yet known how many souls were on board the stricken vessel or what caused it to sink.
Turkish authorities say the boat went down three miles north of the Bosphorus Straight in the Black Sea.
A rescue operation is continuing at the mouth of a mine in southern Turkey after 19 miners became trapped underground.
What appeared to be an air pump was in use at the scene following reports that part of the mine had been flooded.
At least 19 miners remain trapped after a flood inside a coal mine caused it to collapse, according to local media reports.
Rescue teams were dispatched to the mine in the town of Emerek around 70 miles north of Turkey's Mediterranean coastline.
The collapse is believed to have been caused after water that had built up inside the mine flooded into areas where the workers had been located.
Karaman Governor Murat Koca told Turkey's Dogan News Agency (DHA): "The water accumulated underground has flooded into the gallery. According to initial reports 25 workers have been saved while 19 workers remain trapped."
The flood occurred shortly after midday about 300 meters below ground, DHA said.
Turkey's worst ever mining disaster took place less than six months ago in the western town of Soma, where 301 workers were killed.
A coal mine has collapsed in Turkey trapping 23 people, according to the Associated Press.
