24 ISIS-Linked Suspects Arrested Across Turkey

At least 24 people were arrested on Monday for their suspected links to the ISIS terror group, according to judicial sources.

In a statement, the Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office in Diyarbakir, a southeastern province, said the suspects were arrested in simultaneous operations — based in Diyarbakir — conducted in 11 provinces.

The suspects allegedly transferred money to the terror group in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Indonesia and Libya.

Security forces have been involved in a long-running campaign to clear ISIS terrorists from Turkey.

More than 300 people have lost their lives so far in ISIS-claimed attacks in Turkey, where the terror group has targeted civilians in suicide bombings and rocket and gun attacks.
