Seven women Daesh terrorists surrendered to Turkish security forces on Tuesday, according to security sources, reports Anadolu Agency.

The terrorists fled the al-Hol Camp in Hasakah, northern Syria and surrendered at the Cilvegozu border crossing into the province of Hatay, southern Turkey, said the sources, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

The Turkish-origin women were reportedly wanted by security forces for their alleged links to the terrorist group.
