TURKEY IS DETERMINED TO SEND FOREIGN-BORN TERRORISTS BACK

Turkey’s Interior Ministry said on Nov. 9 that the country would begin extraditing captured Daesh/ISIS terrorists to their home countries.

The issue of handling of Daesh/ISIS members and their families detained in Syria has been controversial, with Turkey arguing foreign-born terrorists should be repatriated to their countries of origin, while several European countries have refused, saying the terrorists were denationalized.
