ANKARA (Sputnik) — A total of 19 Islamic State (ISIL or Daesh) militants were detained in Turkish city of Gaziantep, Gaziantep governor Ali Yerlikaya said Sunday.
"Nineteen suspects were detained, 15 kilograms of TNT and anti-tank mines were seized," Yerlikaya told journalists.
Two suicide bombers blow themselves up during a police raid in the city.
In September, the US Embassy in Ankara warned about potential terrorist attacks in Gaziantep, targeting the businesses popular with Westerners. In August, the city of Gaziantep already became a target of a terrorist attack, which claimed the lives of 51 people.
