Turkish security forces have arrested scores of suspected Islamic State (IS) members in the country.
Turkish Presidency’s spokesperson Ibrahim Kalin revealed in a press conference that the Turkish security forces have arrested 165 people suspected of ties to IS.
Kalin said that a list of some 200 more people, facing the same charges, has been drawn up.
He stressed that other countries should tighten their borders and assist Turkey to block the path leading radicalised people to join IS.
Reports reveal that most of the radical Muslims from western countries use Turkey as a gateway to arrive in IS territories in Syria.
The international community has accused Turkey of not taking serious steps against the jihadist heading to IS territories. After Suruç attack in southern Turkey earlier in July this year, the country implemented stricter security measures and began airstrikes on IS positions in Syria.
