Turkish border guards on Friday nabbed an Uzbek-origin terrorist who was trying to enter the country through its southern border, according to Turkey's National Defense Ministry.

The Daesh/ISIS suspect, sought with a red notice and identified only by the initials A.R.S., tried to enter the country from the south-central Kilis province by illegal means, said the ministry in a statement.

The suspect was taken to the Kilis chief prosecutor's office.

Separately, at least two suspects, both Iraqi nationals, were arrested in the northern Bolu province as part of a probe against Daesh.

The suspects, identified only by the initials and age M.H.H.A.M. (31) and I.A.H.A.R. (46), were arrested by Turkish security units in an operation conducted at their hideouts. 

They were later transferred to a local court.
