Turkey will send all detained foreign ISIS terrorists to their countries of origin even if their citizenships have been revoked, Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said Monday (November 4).

Reiterating Turkey's determination to deport ISIS terrorists, Soylu said the country will send them back to their home countries regardless of their citizenship status.

"The world has adopted a new method involving the revoking of citizenship to avoid responsibility," Soylu said, adding that this approach violates international law standards.

The minister opposed the new approach, saying that Turkey will send the terrorists back regardless of their citizenship status.

He noted that Turkey currently holds 1,200 ISIS terrorists in prisons.

Around 287 of these were detained following Operation Peace Spring, Soylu said, noting that they include women and children.

"All of those in prisons are foreign terrorist fighters. There are also some foreign fighters in our repatriation centers too," the minister told reporters, adding that Turkish authorities are on alert regarding these terrorists and continue to detain more.
