POLICE DETAIN 6 DAESH-LINKED SUSPECTS IN ANTI-TERROR OPERATIONS IN TURKEYS BURSA

Police in Turkey's Bursa province detained at least six Daesh-linked terrorist suspects in anti-terror operations, reports said Friday.

Counter-terror squads raided three different addresses in Bursa's İnegöl and Gemlik districts, detaining six Syrian nationals.

The suspects were brought to Bursa Police Department for testimony.

No further information was provided by security sources regarding details of the operations.

Turkey has been targeted by a wave of deadly attacks since 2015 by Daesh and PKK terrorists.

Turkey has deported more than 5,000 Daesh suspects and 3,290 foreign terrorists from 95 different countries in recent years, while dismantling terror cells and safe houses providing logistical assistance to the terrorist group in Syria and Iraq or plotting attacks inside the country.

The country's efforts against Daesh made it a primary target for the terrorist group, which carried out numerous gun and bomb attacks targeting security forces and civilians, including the country's deadliest terror attack, which killed 102 people and wounded 400 others through a twin suicide bombing at a rally in capital Ankara, on October 10, 2015.
