Turkey’s anti-terror fight ensures Europe’s security: Yıldırım

Turkey’s anti-terror fight
Turkey is ensuring Europe’s security by stopping the flow of foreign fighters, countering illegal migration, and fighting militants in Syria, Turkey’s premier said on Feb. 17.


“So far 5,800 foreign fighters have been sent back from our borders, we did not let them in,” Binali Yıldırım told the Munich Security Conference, adding that most of these fighters were residents of European countries.

“And we also banned 56,300 potential foreign fighters affiliated with ISIL [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant] from travelling to Turkey,” he said, stressing that these measures
significantly cut security risks for Europe.

“Around 10,000 ISIL members are currently under arrest in Turkey,” Yıldırım said, giving the most recent figures.
