Turkey: 11 Daesh/ISIS terror suspects arrested
Suspects, all Iraqi nationals, arrested by anti-terror police teams in Black Sea province of Samsun

By Mehmet Kumcagiz

SAMSUN, Turkey (AA) – Eleven people with suspected links to the Daesh/ISIS terror group have been arrested in Turkey's Black Sea province of Samsun, security sources said Friday.

Provincial anti-terror police teams carried out simultaneous operations in the Ilkadim and Atakum districts to arrest the suspects, who are of Iraqi origin, said the sources, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

A number of digital materials were also seized in the operation.

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

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

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