ANKARA (Sputnik) – The Turkish Defense Ministry reported the arrest in the south of the country of five Russian citizens who were trying to illegally cross the border with Syria.

“On the Turkish-Syrian border, in the town of Narlica, Hatay province, six people were arrested, five of them are Russians, including a woman who is in search for being a member of ISIS [autodenominado Estado Islámico, proscrito en Rusia y otros países], and a citizen of Libya, “the statement said.

The so-called Islamic State emerged in 2006 through the merger of various terrorist groups. Until 2013, ISIS was one of the main Sunni armed groups, with at least 4,000 members.

In 2014 the group launched a large-scale offensive in northern and western Iraq and reached its greatest strength during operations in Syria, where it was fighting government forces.

At the end of 2017 it was announced that the terrorist organization was defeated in Syria and Iraq, although to date the elimination of dispersed cells in certain regions continues.
