At least 5 ISIS-linked suspects arrested in central Turkey
At least five people were arrested in central Turkey on Monday for their suspected links to the ISIS terrorist organization, according to a security source.
Police counter-terrorism squads carried out raids to apprehend the suspects — all foreign nationals — in Konya province, said a security source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
Security forces have been involved in a long-running campaign to clear Daesh terrorists from Turkey.
More than 300 people have lost their lives so far in Daesh-claimed attacks in Turkey, where the terror organization has targeted civilians in suicide bombings and rocket and gun attacks.
