Ankara. Police detained at least 101 Daesh-linked suspects in extensive simultaneous counter-terror operations carried out with 1,500 cops in Turkish capital Ankara early Thursday, Daily Sabah reported.
According to reports, the operations were carried out by Ankara Public Prosecutor's Office, which issued detention warrants for 245 suspects.
Police reportedly carried out raids in 240 different addresses in Sincan, Etimesgut and Çubuk districts and confiscated digital and other material belonging to the terrorist group.
Turkey has been targeted by a wave of deadly attacks since 2015 by Daesh and PKK terrorists.
Turkey has deported more than 5,000 Daesh suspects and 3,290 foreign terrorists from 95 different countries in recent years, while dismantling terror cells and safe houses providing logistical assistance to the terrorist group in Syria and Iraq or plotting attacks inside the country.
The country's efforts against Daesh made it a primary target for the terrorist group, which carried out numerous gun and bomb attacks targeting security forces and civilians, including the country's deadliest terror attack, which killed 102 people and wounded 400 others through a twin suicide bombing at a rally in capital Ankara, on Oct. 10, 2015.
