Simultaneous anti-terror raids were organised across three Turkish provinces on November 23, 2015.

Total of 11 DAESH suspects were detained on Monday in simultaneous raids across the country, Turkish security officials announced.

During the operations, eight were detained in eastern Bingol province, two in western city of Balikesir and one in southeastern Diyarbakir province.

Operations targeting terror organisation DAESH have been intensified since the Suruc suicide bombing that killed 34 people in Turkey’s southeastern province of Sanliurfa on July 20, 2015.

DAESH was also linked to the Ankara twin bombings on Oct. 10 that killed 103 civilians and injured more than 500 in Turkey’s capital.

Within the scope of the latest operations, a Belgian man of Moroccan origin, Ahmed Dahmani, was arrested by Turkish police on the suspicion that he scouted out target locations for DAESH terrorists in Paris attacks that killed 130 people on Nov. 13.

Also Earlier in the week, Turkish security forces detained eight suspects, all Moroccan nationals, over having links with the terrorist organization DAESH at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport.
