Turkish border guards stopped a suspected suicide bomber from the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) takfiri group on Tuesday near the Syrian border, a security source said.

The potential bomber, who was carrying explosives, was arrested alongside nine other suspected ISIL members in Gaziantep province, the source said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking publicly.

The group had crossed from Syria, the source added without providing further detail. The Turkish authorities regularly arrest suspected ISIL members in the provinces of Gaziantep and Kilis, which border a region of Syria under the group’s control.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.
