Suspected ISIS suicide bomber, who was responsible for transporting ammunition from Syria to Turkey for terrorists, has been detained by Turkish security forces as part of a counter-terror probe.

According to reports, the terrorist identified as Abud Mahho, who is a Syrian national and entered Turkey through illegal means from Tal Abyad controlled by PKK's Syrian offshoot Democratic Union Party (PYD), was detained at a house in Shanlıurfa province.

The terrorist reportedly admitted to transferring weapons and ammunition for ISIS, and police discovered materials used to make suicide-vests, including three detonators, three remote control key systems, and 3.5 kilograms of explosives and others.

Police have reportedly said that the material found in the terrorist's house bears similarities to the materials used in terrorist attacks carried out by ISIS in Istanbul, Ankara and Gaziantep provinces.

According to Turkey's Justice Ministry, at least 780 people, including 350 foreigners, remain in detention — some of whom have been convicted — for suspected links to the ISIS terrorist group.
