Two Daesh/ISIS terror suspects were held while trying to illegally enter Turkey from Syria, the National Defense Ministry said on Friday.
Turkey became one of the first countries to declare Daesh/ISIS a terrorist group in 2013.
It has since been attacked by the terror group multiple times, with over 300 people killed and hundreds more injured in at least 10 suicide bombings, seven bomb attacks, and four armed assaults.
In response, Turkey launched anti-terror operations at home and abroad to prevent further attacks.
