Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MİT) has warned about possible attacks by the ISIL Takfiri group against foreign embassies in the country.

The MİT issued a warning for the country’s police and security forces that the Takfiri militants, who have retreated from Syria’s border town of Kobani, have crossed into Turkey, Hurriyet Daily reported on Thursday.

The ISIL militants could be working on armed or bombing attacks in the Turkish cities of Ankara and Istanbul against the diplomatic missions of the countries involved in the so-called US-led coalition against the terrorist group, according to MİT.

Kurdish Peshmerga fighters and People's Protection Units (YPG) retook the strategic town of Kobani, located on the border with Turkey, from the ISIL Takfiris on January 26, after more than 100 days of fierce fighting with them.

The ISIL terrorists, however, are still scattered in Kobani’s southeastern and southwestern countryside.

Earlier on February 3, the Turkish intelligence service warned that some 3,000 ISIL members from Syria and Iraq are currently in the region and aim to cross into Turkey, particularly to Hatay, Adana, Ankara and Istanbul.
