Turkish police have arrested the top Islamic State (IS) commander in the country, the government says.
Mahmut Ozden had “important plans” in his possession and had received orders to carry out an attack, the Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said.
He was detained in Adana province, and Mr Soylu said an operation was continuing against other IS figures.
IS officially announced its presence in Turkey in 2019 and has conducted numerous attacks in the country.
“[The suspect] had been constantly receiving orders from both Iraq and Syria to carry out an attack in Turkey,” Mr Soylu said on Tuesday.
He announced the arrest on Twitter and congratulated the police.
