6 DAESH-LINKED SUSPECTS DETAINED IN EASTERN OF TURKEY

Security forces detained six suspects on Tuesday for alleged links to the terrorist group Daesh, according to a judicial source.

In the eastern Bingol province, the suspects were detained under an investigation by Bingol's Chief Public Prosecutor's Office, according to a statement from the office.

Nearly 190 suspects linked to Daesh were arrested in counter-terrorism operations across Turkey last month, according to data from security officials.

At least 319 people have lost their lives in Daesh terror attacks in Turkey, where the terror organization has targeted civilians in suicide bomb, rocket, and gun attacks.

In 2015, in Daesh's worst attack to date, 107 people were killed when suicide bombers targeted peace protesters outside Ankara's main train station.
