ADANA, Turkey

One of three Daesh/ISIS terror suspects, who were arrested in Turkey’s southern Adana province on Thursday, was remanded in custody on Saturday.

The three were arrested for allegedly being part of certain groups of the terror organization and for participating in organizational meetings.

While one of the suspects was remanded in custody by a criminal court of peace, other two were released on bail.

A hunt for two more fugitives are ongoing.

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

The country has since been attacked by Daesh/ISIS terrorists 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.
