Turkey police detain 10 for ISIL recruitment

World Bulletin / News Desk

At least 10 people have been detained in Turkish capital Ankara early Monday for allegedly being recruiters for ISIL terrorist group.

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

Turkey lists ISIL as a terrorist group.

On Jan. 12, a suspected ISIL 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 ISIL. 

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. ISIL claimed responsibility for the attack.
