Security forces detained early Saturday 11 Daesh terrorist suspects in Turkey's southeastern Gaziantep province in an investigation launched against the suspected group members.
The investigation was launched after a suicide bomber blew himself up on Thursday when police broke into the terrorist cell.
The terrorist suicide bomber detonated his explosive belt after he noticed the counterterrorism unit was about to enter the cell.
During the investigation 11 terror suspects were detained and a large amount of explosives, guns, and bullets were found.
The suspected terrorists are accused of being members of a terrorist group and keeping explosive devices.
Gaziantep, along with neighboring Kilis, borders Syria's Daesh-controlled areas.
Turkey, which is facing growing blowback from the conflict in Syria and renewed conflict with PKK terrorists, has recently seen an uptick of such attacks. Both Daesh and PKK have targeted security forces and civilians in suicide and car bombing attacks.
