8 Daesh/ISIS terror suspects nabbed in Istanbul


Eight people with suspected links to the Daesh/ISIS terror group were arrested in Istanbul, security sources said on Friday.

Operations were carried out simultaneously at 10 locations in seven districts of the metropolis, said the sources, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

A large number of organizational documents and digital materials were also seized, they added.

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

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.
