Turkish security forces arrested 13 suspected terrorists during security operations in Istanbul, Ankara, and Adana on Sunday, January 13. According to security officials, the suspected terrorists have links to Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), a jihadist militant organization active in Syria with ties to Al-Qa'ida. Similar security operations are possible in Turkey in the near term.
Individuals in Turkey are advised to maintain a high degree of vigilance, report any suspicious objects or behavior to the relevant authorities, and be particularly cautious when visiting sites deemed especially likely to be targeted in an attack (public transportation, train stations, ports, airports, public or government buildings, embassies or consulates, international organizations, schools and universities, religious sites, markets, hotels, and restaurants frequented by foreigners/Westerners, festivals, etc.).
