"More than 3,300 suspicious foreigners have been deported, 2,800 detained and 954 arrested [since the start of the Syrian civil war in 2011]," Kalin told reporters.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s spokesman added that around 41,000 people have been added to the list of suspected Daesh members or associates forbidden from entering Turkish territory.
"We are taking all the necessary measures to deal with the Daesh at the highest level, the fight against supporters of terrorists is being carried out very intensely," Kalin added.
An April 12 letter circulated by the Turkish mission in the United Nations last week rejected accusations of illegal arms supplies to the Daesh, a designated terrorist network banned in many countries including Russia.
The letter named a series of foundations funded by sources from European and Middle Eastern countries accused of supplying weapons, including rounds for TOW anti-tank missile systems and RPG-7 grenade launchers, to Daesh militants last year.
It further detailed supplies of 2,500 tonnes of ammonium nitrate, 456 tonnes of potassium nitrate and other chemical components transferred through Turkey and supplied to the Daesh.
