Police arrest 18 Daesh/ISIS terror suspects in Turkey

By Sertac Bulur

ANKARA (AA) - Turkish police arrested 18 people in the capital Ankara over their suspected links to the terror group Daesh/ISIS, security sources said on Monday.

Police arrested suspects, all are foreign nationals, in simultaneous anti-terror operations across the city, said the source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

The police continue the search for two other suspects, it added.

In 2013, Turkey became one of the first countries to declare Daesh/ISIS a terrorist group.

The country has since been attacked by Daesh/ISIS terrorists multiple times, with at least 10 suicide bombings, seven bomb attacks, and four armed attacks that killed 315 people and injured hundreds more.

In response, Turkey launched anti-terror operations at home and abroad to prevent further attacks.
