Turkish place caught 31 suspected Daesh members Saturday in Istanbul.
In a raid, police found the suspects in six addresses in three districts of the city, according to state-run Anadolu news agency. Police did not give details of the locations, but everyone detained was a foreign national, and officers seized digital material and documents, Anadolu said.
Turkish police began to increase operations against Daesh suspects last year, just before the first anniversary of a New Year’s gun attack on a nightclub in Istanbul that left 39 dead. Daesh had claimed responsibility for the attack.
Turkey is a partner in the U.S.-led coalition against Daesh fighters, an extremist group in Turkey.
