Forty-one Daesh terrorists were handed over to Turkey on Saturday following their release by the People’s Protection Units (YPG), the Syrian offshoot of the PKK terrorist organization.
Speaking on Saturday in the capital Ankara, Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu said Turkey has so far received a total of 236 Daesh terrorists.
Minister Soylu went on to say that some of those released by the YPG and PKK terrorist groups were women and children.
“In line with our laws, the children will be referred to related institutions to ensure their protection,” he said.
Soylu said Turkey would accept as Turkish citizens those who have strong links to Daesh and will act accordingly.
He went on to say that Turkey killed over 3,000 Daesh terrorists during Operation Euphrates Shield in northern Syria, and Ankara did its utmost best against the terrorist group.
