ISTANBUL - The Turkish military killed two suspected Islamic State members trying to enter Turkey illegally at the weekend, security sources said on Thursday, including a man thought to be plotting a suicide bomb attack in Turkey.
The suspected militants were "neutralized" on June 25 after refusing the army's warnings at the Syrian-Turkish border while trying to cross, the sources said.
On Tuesday, three suicide bombers opened fire and then blew themselves up in Istanbul's main airport, killing 42 people in the deadliest of a series of suicide attacks in Turkey this year.
