Eight Iraqi nationals were deported from Turkey on Monday after their arrest, in an operation against the Daesh terror group, according to security sources.

Security forces in the northern Samsun province held ten Iraqi suspects, who prosecutors then ordered to be deported. The suspects were handed over to anti-human trafficking and border gates teams for their deportation procedures.

Proceedings of the other two suspects are ongoing.
