Security forces arrested 54 suspects for their alleged links to the far-left DHKP-C terror group across Turkey, security sources said on Friday.

Prosecutors in Istanbul issued arrest warrants against 126 suspects for plotting terrorist acts by receiving weapon training, said the sources on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

Police’s efforts are ongoing to nab the remaining ones.

The DHKP-C is responsible for several terror attacks in Turkey, including a 2013 attack on the US Embassy in Ankara, which martyred a Turkish security guard.

The group is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US and EU.
