Two suspects arrested in a Turkish operation were remanded in custody Monday over their alleged links to the terrorist group Daesh, according to judicial sources, reports Anadolu Agency.

The suspects had been caught by Turkish security forces in the southeastern Mardin province, said the sources, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

When the suspects appeared in court, they were remanded in custody.

OPINION: The tug of war between Turkey and Russia in Syria continues

Turkey was one of the first countries to recognize Daesh as a terror group, in 2013.

The country has since been attacked by Daesh terrorists numerous times, including in 10 suicide bombings, seven bombings, and four armed attacks which killed 315 people and injured hundreds.

In response, Turkey launched military and police operations at home and abroad to prevent further terror attacks.
