Turkey says will begin repatriation of Daesh prisoners Monday
Turkey will begin to repatriate captured Daesh militants to their home countries as of Monday, Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu was quoted as saying by state media Friday.

Turkey has long criticized its European allies for refusing to take back Daesh fighters who are their citizens, and Monday warned that Ankara would send captured jihadists back to their countries even if their citizenships have been revoked.

"We are telling them: 'We'll repatriate these people to you', and we are starting as of Monday," the state-run Anadolu news agency quoted Soylu as saying.
