Police have detained at least 25 Daesh-linked suspects in anti-terror operations carried out in nine provinces throughout Turkey, reports said Wednesday.
According to reports, police in eastern Van and Ağrı provinces, Istanbul, Izmir, Kocaeli, Bingöl, Adıyaman, Denizli and Mardin carried out simultaneous operations targeting the Daesh terrorist group.
Many of the suspects reportedly have links with Daesh terrorists in Syria, and have been on a security watchlist for the past four months.
Since Daesh emerged as a terrorist group in war-torn Syria, Turkey detained over 5,000 Daesh suspects and deported over 3,290 foreign terrorist fighters, originating from 95 different countries. It also refused entry to more than 38,269 individuals.
