Turkish police intensively work at airports
Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 30
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
The Turkish police began working intensively at the country's airports, Turkish newspaper Milliyet reported Jan. 30.
The reason is the information about more than two hundred militants from different countries willing to arrive in Turkey to leave for Syria to join the militants of the Islamic State terrorist organization.
It also reported that ten people, whose nationality was not disclosed, were deported from the country as part of the measures against "Islamic state" organization.
Earlier, the Turkish authorities said that the intelligence services of the European countries do not share the data about the individuals suspected of terrorist activity. As a result, these individuals arrive in Turkey and then leave for Syria.
The Turkish side explained that a number of countries are trying to get rid of radicals within the country.
Following the start of military confrontation in Syria between the armed opposition and the government forces, the IS penetrated the country in 2013. The organization said at the time it refuses to take the oath of Al-Qaeda and declared 'a holy war' against all groups in Iraq and Syria, as well as the Syrian government forces.
Strengthening of the IS in Syria allowed it to return to Iraq, deploying military actions against government forces there.
In late June of 2014, the IS announced about the creation of the 'Islamic Caliphate' on the territories under its control in Iraq and Syria. In turn, Iraqi authorities asked the international community for help in fighting the IS.
