Three foreign nationals were arrested Saturday in southeastern Turkey for suspected links to the Daesh terrorist organization, according to a police source.

Suspects were accused of being a member of Daesh terror group, recruiting new members and maintaining arms, said the source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

Separately in western Izmir province, one foreign national was arrested due to suspected links to the Daesh terrorist organization.

Muhammed Ramadan was accused of being a member of Daesh terror group’s “execution team”.

More than 300 people have been killed in attacks claimed by Daesh in Turkey, where the terrorist organization has targeted civilians in suicide bombings and armed attacks in recent years.

Turkish security forces have been involved in a long-running campaign to thwart Daesh attacks.
