Turkish police have arrested 13 foreign national suspects allegedly planning terror attacks targeting New Year’s celebrations on behalf of Daesh/ISIS, said security sources on Tuesday.
Early this morning anti-terror police units carried out raids at the addresses of suspects in the capital Ankara, said the sources, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
While police arrested five suspects during the raids, another suspect was rounded up later as part of the ongoing operation.
Each of the suspects was allegedly planning a separate terror attack targeting celebrations, it added.
The suspects were found to be linked to the terrorist group Daesh/ISIS in conflict
