Turkish intelligence captures 2 Daesh terrorists in Syria
An operation led by Turkey's National Intelligence Organization (MIT) led to the arrest of two Daesh/ISIS terrorists in Syria, security sources said on Monday.
The terrorists, identified as Orhan Moran and Mustafa Kılıçlı, have been brought to Turkey, said the sources, who requested anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
They were handed over to gendarmerie forces in Turkey's southeastern border province of Hatay, the sources said.
Plans of attacks in Turkey, Syria
In their preliminary statements, the terrorists admitted that they were planning attacks in Turkey and on the Turkish military in Syria.
The suspects also acknowledged that they were helping other Daesh/ISIS terrorists in the region, the sources added.
Turkey was one of the first countries to declare Daesh/ISIS a terror group.
