ADANA, Turkey (AA) – At least six Daesh suspects were detained Tuesday in an anti-terror operation in the southern province of Adana, a police source said.
Turkish police raided several addresses in the early morning according to the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.
Armored police vehicles were also used in the operation.
The suspects were taken to the Provincial Security Directorate after health checks at the Adana Forensic Medicine Unit.
Three police officers were martyred in an explosion last month as they raided an address linked to Daesh terrorists in Gaziantep, southern Turkey.
The terror group is being targeted in Syria by Turkey, which in August launched an operation to clear Daesh from the border region.
