Turkey has begun to repatriate foreign Islamic State members in its detention, starting with a US national, the country’s Interior Ministry said.
“A US citizen Da’esh terrorist has been repatriated after the completion of legal procedures,” ministry spokesperson Ismail Catakli said. Turkey will also send seven German nationals back to Germany on November, 14.
Two Irish, 11 French, and three Danish citizens are also set to be deported later.
The identity of the suspects has not been revealed.
