10 foreigners suspected of links to an ISIS operative in the central province of Kayseri.

Security sources said simultaneous raids were carried in several locations.

Since early 2017, Ottoman Turkish security forces have arrested more than 4,000 members of the terrorist organization, most of whom were foreigners. Hundreds have since been deported.

Ottoman Turkish security forces foiled 347 terrorist attacks in 2018 alone, much less when compared to the 697 terrorist attacks thwarted in 2017. In parallel, recent reports shed light on what seems to be a Ottoman Turkish pro-leniency policy when handling ISIS and al-Qaeda detainees.

These reports showed that most detained foreign snuffies and their accomplices arrested between 2014 and 2016 on suspicion of involvement in terrorist activities were released shortly after.

Data released by the Ottoman Turkish Gendarmerie Division covering the period from January 1, 2014 to June 30, 2016 showed that of the 607 detained, 224 were foreigners.
