At least 10 foreign nationals were taken into custody Friday in the Reyhanli district of Turkey’s southern Hatay province during an operation against Daesh, according to Anadolu Agency.


The 10 suspects were identified as five Afghans, two Azerbaijanis, plus one Tajikistani, Egyptian and Syrian national, the source said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.


The suspects have been accused of being members of the Daesh terrorist organization.


Security sources said the suspects had entered Turkey illegally on August 30.
