Turkey has handed over to Kosovo authorities three people suspected of being involved in terrorist organizations such as Daesh.

Police said Monday that that the three suspects were arrested at the border crossing with neighboring Macedonia after being returned from Turkey.

They added that the suspects were questioned and evidence of the charges was found at two locations.

Police did not give clear indications of what evidence they had found or what terrorist acts the suspects were involved in.

A few hundred Kosovo-born volunteers have gone to join Daesh in Syria and Iraq, mainly passing through Turkey. They often appear on their propaganda videos warning of imminent attacks.

The Turkish government has intensified its counterterror operations against Daesh, PKK, and DHKP-C terror organizations following recent attacks and killings of security forces and civilians in the country.

Security forces have detained and deported thousands of suspects who had links with the terrorist organization Daesh.
