Turkey has dealt a huge blow to Daesh terrorist group (ISIS), as the country’s security forces neutralized at least 22 terror operatives and arrested 212 other suspects, including senior figures, in nationwide operations in February.
Turkey’s counter-terror fight against Daesh continues in a determined way as security forces carried out simultaneous operations in many Turkish provinces, including Istanbul and capital Ankara.
Some operations in February saw Turkish forces arrest four Daesh members in southeastern province of Sanliurfa, near Syria. The terror operatives included a female suspect for whom a red notice was issued.
In northwestern province of Sakarya, Turkish military operations saw six Iraqi suspects arrested and remanded for having links to the terror group. In western province of Bursa, 52 Syrian suspects were caught in operations against Daesh.
Turkish forces also arrested 22 pro-Daesh suspects in an anti-terror operation conducted in Istanbul.
Another 39 Daesh suspects were arrested in counter-terror operations held in capital Ankara, Black Sea province of Samsun, Sanliurfa, central province of Konya and eastern province of Elazig.
