GAZIANTEP, Turkey

Three Daesh/ISIS suspects were remanded in custody in southeastern Turkey, a security source said on Saturday.

Four suspects were arrested in four raids by gendarmerie teams in Gaziantep’s Nurdagi district, said a source, requesting anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

Three of the suspects were remanded by a court and one was released under judicial control, the source added.

In 2013, Turkey became one of the first countries to declare Daesh/ISIS a terrorist group.

The country has since been attacked by the terror group multiple times, with 315 people killed and hundreds more injured in at least 10 suicide bombings, seven bomb attacks, and four armed assaults.

In response, Turkey launched anti-terror operations at home and abroad to prevent further attacks.
