Turkish security forces arrested seven Daesh terrorist group members during anti-terror operations across the country, the Interior Ministry said in a statement Sunday.
According to the statement, one of the suspects was determined to be a senior operative responsible for training camps, where around 1,500-2,000 terrorists were trained annually
The other two suspects reportedly were responsible for providing weapons and equipment for the Daesh training camps.
The operation was conducted in Turkey’s Osmaniye, Istanbul, Gaziantep, Kilis and Bursa provinces, the ministry said.
Foreigners looking to join Daesh in Syria have mostly attempted to use Turkey as their crossing point. Turkey has taken significant measures against foreign Daesh members and has urged Western countries for intelligence cooperation.
Security forces have been involved in a long-running campaign to clear Daesh terrorists from Turkey.
More than 300 people lost their lives in Daesh-claimed attacks in Turkey, where the terror organization has targeted civilians in suicide bomb, rocket, and gun attacks in recent years.
