Turkiye’s Interior Minister Ali Yerlikaya Wednesday said that 2,136 people have been arrested after a major police operation in the country over the past three days. He added that the detainees had police records and were wanted by the authorities for various crimes.

"We will not allow escaped criminals to roam the streets with impunity. We will not allow them to disturb the peace of our families," the Interior Minister said on X.

Six of the detainees had been wanted by the police for over 10 years. One of them had been on a wanted list for between five and ten years, and the rest for the past five years.

Yerlikaya thanked the district chiefs of the gendarmerie, police, and coast guard for their participation in the operation codenamed "Ring-6", which involved house and workplace searches and roadside checks.

The detainees have been handed over to the judicial authorities.
