Police detained 10 suspected Daesh terrorists in Turkey's central Eskişehir province as part of anti-terror operations, reports said Wednesday.
According to reports, the suspects are identified as Iraqi nationals and were detained during simultaneous raids across the city, a security source said on condition of anonymity.
More than 300 people have lost their lives in Daesh-claimed attacks in Turkey, where the terror organization has targeted civilians in suicide, rocket and armed attacks.
Turkish security forces have been involved in a long-running campaign to thwart Daesh attacks.
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.
According to Turkey's Justice Ministry, at least 780 people, including 350 foreigners, remain in detention — some of whom have been convicted — for suspected links to the Daesh terrorist group.
