Turkey’s government deported 11 French Jihadi fighters on Monday.
“As part of ongoing deportations of foreign terrorist fighters, 11 French citizens have been sent back to their home country,” Turkey’s interior ministry said in a statement.
According to the French foreign ministry, all deportees were women.
Last November, the Turkish government announced it would deport some 1,200 members of the Islamic State jihadi fighters to their home countries. Since, 59 individuals have been deported, of whom 26 to Europe and the United States.
A 2014 bilateral treaty between Turkey and France stipulates that any deportees will be arrested and put on trial before their arrival in France.
