Turkish anti-terror units detained 10 people linked to the terror organization Daesh in the Turkish capital Ankara on Monday, APA reports citing Daily Sabah.

The suspects, whose nationalities were not publicized, entered Turkey illegally and were found to be active members of the terror group.

After their procedures are completed, the suspects will be handed over to the migration authorities to be deported out of Turkey, security sources said.

Meanwhile, eight Turkish citizens were detained after the Ankara Public Prosecutor's Office discovered in an investigation that they were in contact with the al-Qaida-linked Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in Syria.
