Ankara , Turkey ( Anadolu Agency + DIPLOMAT.SO) – At least 10 people have been detained in Turkish capital Ankara early Monday for allegedly being recruiters for Islamic State (IS) terrorist group.

According to security sources, the early morning operation by Ankara anti-terror police squads targeted suspects upon charges of recruiting for Islamic State and having links with the ISIS forces on the ground.

Turkey lists Islamic State in Syria and Iraq as a terrorist group.

On Jan. 12, a suspected Islamic State suicide bomber killed 10 people — mostly German tourists — and wounded 15 others at Istanbul’s Sultanahmet district.

On Oct. 10, 2015, twin suicide bombings killed 103 people during a rally outside capital Ankara’s main train station. The attack was blamed on ISIS/ISIL/IS or Daesh group.

Thirty-three people were killed and 104 others were wounded when a suicide bomber detonated his explosive belt in the Suruc town of the southeastern province of Sanliurfa. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.
