Turkish Hostages Held by IS in Iraq Released !

rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrDozens of Turkish hostages who were seized by Islamic militants in Iraq have been freed and safely returned to Turkey, the prime minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, said on Saturday.

The 49 Turks, including diplomatic staff, were seized from the consulate on 11 June when the Islamic State group (Isis) overran Mosul, in Iraq, and stormed the Turkish consulate. The hostages included the consul general, Ozturk Yilmaz, other diplomats, children and special forces police.

During a visit to Baku, in Azerbaijan, Davutoglu said that the hostages were released early on Saturday and had arrived in Turkey. He was cutting his visit short to meet with the hostages in the province of Sanliurfa, near Turkey’s border with Syria.

He did not provide details on the circumstances of their release but said the hostages were freed through the intelligence agency’s “own methods” and that no operation was carried out. He thanked Turkey’s intelligence agency and the foreign ministry’s head official for their efforts.
