Courts remanded 31 of the suspects in custody following multiple operations carried out mainly in Istanbul, southeastern Şanlıurfa and in the Black Sea port city of Samsun.
In Istanbul alone, 33 Daesh suspects were rounded up, including 28 foreigners. During operations in Istanbul, Şanlıurfa, Nevşehir, Adana and Elazığ, Turkish security forces arrested 52 suspected terrorists, of whom 29 were remanded in custody.
