Ankara, July 28 (IANS) Security forces here detained 1,050 suspects across 34 Turkish provinces since the nationwide anti-terrorist operations began in the country, a media report said.

The statement also added that ambassadors of all 28 NATO allies will meet in Brussels on Tuesday following Ankara’s request amid Turkey’s operations against the outlawed organisations.
