Turkey repatriated two foreign terrorist fighters to Belgium on Friday, said the Interior Ministry.

On Twitter, the Turkish ministry said the Belgium nationals were sent back to their countries of origin as part of Turkey’s ramped-up efforts to repatriate foreign terrorist fighters.

Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu announced on Thursday that 11 French national members of the Daesh/ISIS terror group will be sent back to their countries of origin early December.

“This week we will carry out repatriations to Belgium and Ireland on Friday and Saturday,” Soylu had said.
