Turkey has now detained nearly 750 suspects in a police operation against Daesh (ISIS), authorities said Monday.Turkey in the last year has suffered dozens of deadly attacks linked to Daesh or Kurdish militants, and has been stepping up its anti-terrorism efforts.Daesh, which took responsibility for a New Year's mass shooting at an Istanbul nightclub that killed 39 people, including three Lebanese citizens, claims to have multiple cells in Turkey. The accused perpetrator of the nightclub attack, an Uzbek national who reportedly trained in Afghanistan, was detained in Istanbul two weeks after the assault. Officials hoped his questioning would lead to valuable information about Daesh operations and cells inside Turkey, but it wasn't immediately known if the major raid was in any way linked to his arrest.
