Turkey detains 10 IS suspects

Ankara: Turkish police detained 10 Islamic State (IS) suspects in security operations on Tuesday covering four provinces, the state-run TRT TV reported.
Seven suspects residing in the central provinces of Ankara and the three others, all foreign nationals, in the provinces of Konya, Kayseri, and Gaziantep were caught in simultaneous police operations.
Their identities were confirmed after the police in Ankara examined the images in the digital materials obtained from detained IS members and some online public-accessible images.
The police said the suspects had carried out armed activities.
A large number of digital materials and organizational documents were seized during the raids.
The Turkish government designated the IS a terrorist organization in 2013, blaming it for a spate of deadly attacks in Türkiye since 2015.
