A local court in central Turkey remanded four Daesh/ISIS suspects in custody on Wednesday as the country’s war against terrorism continues.
Detained on Tuesday in a police operation in Yozgat, the suspects – all are Iraqi nationals and including a senior member of the terror group – were put in jail upon the order of penal court of peace on duty.
In 2013, Turkey became one of the first countries to declare Daesh/ISIS a terrorist group.
The country has since been attacked by Daesh/ISIS terrorists multiple times, with at least 10 suicide bombings, seven bomb attacks, and four armed attacks that killed 315 people and injured hundreds more.
In response, Turkey launched anti-terror operations at home and abroad to prevent further attacks.
