Ankara, Jan 25 (IANS) Turkish Interior Minister Ali Yerlikaya said police have detained 28 suspects affiliated with terror outfit Islamic State (IS).

Interior Minister Ali Yerlikaya posted on X: “The suspects were captured as part of “Operation Heroes-46″ across nine provinces in the country. The police teams seized a large amount of foreign currency and Turkish Lira during simultaneous raids.”

Video footage posted on the Turkish minister’s X account showed police entering apartments and buildings and putting suspects into vehicles.

In 2013, the Turkish government designated the IS as a terrorist organisation and blamed it for a spate of deadly attacks in the country since 2015.

In December last year, Turkish intelligence and security forces captured a top IS terrorist in charge of the group’s finances in an operation in Turkey’s southeastern province of Mersin.
