News Service AA

Turkish security forces arrested a foreign national with links to the Daesh terrorist group Wednesday in the capital Ankara.

According to the regional gendarmerie command, he had entered Turkey illegally.

He was detained after an operation was conducted to determine where he was hiding.

In 2013, Turkey became one of the first countries to declare Daesh a terrorist organization.

The country has since been attacked by the terrorist group multiple times, with over 300 people killed and hundreds more wounded 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.
