At least 62 ISIS-linked terror suspects are arrested in Turkey
A total of 62 ISIS-linked terror suspects were arrested across Turkey, security sources said on Friday.
Police arrested 52 Daesh suspects in the capital Ankara, said a police source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
The counterterrorism forces continued operations to arrest 12 more suspects as part of the investigation against the terror group, prosecutors said.
Separately, security forces arrested 10 suspects in the country’s northern Samsun province on the Black Sea coast, another source said.
All suspects are Iraqi nationals.
Security forces have been involved in a long-running campaign to rid Turkey of Daesh terrorists.
More than 300 people have lost their lives in Daesh-claimed attacks in Turkey, where the terror group has targeted civilians in suicide bomb, rocket, and gun attacks.
