Turkey: 2 foreign terrorists extradited to Netherlands
Ankara continues to send Daesh/ISIS members back to their countries
Turkey on Tuesday extradited two Dutch terrorists to their home country, said the Interior Ministry.
“Extradition of foreign terrorist continues. In this context today, two Dutch national terrorists were deported to the Netherlands,” said the ministry on Twitter.
Although the ministry did not mention the name of the terrorist organization, the issue of handling of Daesh/ISIS members and their families detained in Syria -- including foreign members of the terror group -- has been controversial, with Turkey arguing foreign-born terrorists should be repatriated to their countries of origin.
Ankara has said that it will send Daesh/ISIS members back to their countries, but several European countries have refused, saying the terrorists were denationalized.
