Turkish security forces on Monday (October 28) detained 20 suspects linked to ISIS group in capital Ankara.

All detainees held in the anti-terror operation were foreign nationals.

The detentions come in the wake of the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in northwestern Syria by the US military Sunday.

Turkey has deported more than 5,000 ISIS suspects and 3,290 foreign terrorists from 95 different countries in recent years, while dismantling terror cells and safe houses providing logistical assistance to the terrorist group in Syria and Iraq or plotting attacks inside the country.
