Istanbul police arrest 7 Daesh suspects


Police in Istanbul detained at least 7 Daesh suspects for making money transactions for the terror group and spreading its propaganda on social media, a police source said Thursday.

The arrests came after anti-terror squads conducted simultaneous raids in 6 districts of the city, said the police source, who spoke anonymously due to restrictions on talking to media.

The raids saw numbers of organizational documents and digital tools of the terror group seized.

Turkish security forces have been involved in a long-running campaign to thwart Daesh attacks.

More than 300 people have lost their lives in Daesh-claimed attacks in Turkey so far, where the terror organization has targeted civilians in suicide bomb, rocket and gun attacks.
