Earlier, Minister Soylu said Turkey now detained about 1,200 IS members of foreign nationality and during its recent military campaign in northern Syria, 287 militants were arrested.

Turkey has criticized Western countries' refusal to repatriate citizens from participating in IS in Syria and Iraq by depriving them of their citizenship. He has deprived the nationality of more than 100 citizens joining jihadist groups abroad. It is not clear whether Ankara will repatriate such deprived members.
