Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) announced on Wednesday, that one DAESH terrorist was killed in Kilis by a Turkish soldier on Tuesday, when the terrorist tried to cross the Turkish border from Syria.

TSK also said in a statement that 21 people, including nine children have been detained on suspicion of attempting to join DAESH terrorist organization.

Additionally, Turkish security forces detained eight suspects over having links with the terrorist organization DAESH on Wednesday at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport.

Since July, Turkish security forces have been conducting wide-scale anti-terror operations across Turkey, after a DAESH suicide bombing killed dozens of people in the Suruc district of Sanliurfa province on July 20.

Despite the efforts, the terrorist organisation carried out a second brutal attack on Oct 10 in capital city of Ankara, killing more than 100 people.
