10 Daesh/ISIS suspects arrested in Istanbul
Suspects nabbed in multiple operations in Istanbul province, say police
As many as 10 people suspected of having links to the Daesh/ISIS terror group were arrested in Istanbul province, police said on Sunday.
The suspects were apprehended in operations carried out at 12 locations in eight districts of the province on Aug. 19, according to the police.
In 2013, Turkey became one of the first countries to declare Daesh/ISIS a terrorist organization.
The country has since been attacked by the terror group multiple times, with over 300 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.
