Turkish police in the southern city of Antalya have captured eight suspects linked to the Daesh terrorist group. Five suspects were arrested while others were released pending trial Tuesday.
Police found bomb-making materials in the possession of the arrested suspects in the operation carried out after an intelligence report said that Daesh was planning a bomb attack in the city.
As many as 1,338 suspects, including 694 foreigners, were arrested in Turkey last year for having links to the Daesh terrorist group. Additionally, a total of 339 major terror plots were prevented as a result of the seizure of 247 explosives and 61 bomb vehicles in 2016.
