Police detained 12 Daesh terror group linked suspects in counter-terror raids conducted in Turkey's southern Adana province early Friday.
According to reports, counter-terror teams from Adana Police, supported by Special Operations teams raided several homes in the city center.
The police reportedly searched the homes and the surroundings.
Five of the detained are Syrian nationals, while two of them are Iraqi nationals, Anadolu Agency reported.
The suspects were brought to the police headquarters after routine health check-ups.
Daesh is behind a string of attacks in Turkey and the most recent one occurred during New Year's Eve at a popular Istanbul night club, where a lone gunman gunned down 39 revelers.
Since Daesh has emerged as a terrorist group in war-torn Syria, Turkey has detained over 5,000 Daesh suspects and deported over 3,290 foreign terrorist fighters from 95 countries and refused more than 38,269 individuals' entry to Turkey.
