    Daesh extremists have planned to stage attacks against Turkish lawmakers and journalists, local media reported Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the Hurriyet newspaper, police seized a kill list that contained names of prominent journalists and indicated their whereabouts. The information was obtained following arrests of two terrorist suspects in Kilis, a Turkish province on the border with Syria.

    Daesh is a terrorist group outlawed in many countries worldwide, including Russia and the United States. The jihadists control northern provinces of Syria and Iraq. Daesh has claimed responsibility for many terrorist attacks in the Middle East and Europe. The group is also notorious for beheadings of journalists.
