Spurred by testimony from a key plotter of the deadly 2013 double car bombing in Reyhanlı, Turkish security forces are now seeking out eight suspects, according to judicial sources.
Ankara prosecutors issued warrants for the suspects, including one identified as Mehmet Gezer, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.
Captured by Turkish intelligence in the Syrian port city of Latakia on Sept. 12, Nazik, 34, has confessed to playing a role in the deadly bombing in the southern Turkish border town of Reyhanlı in the Hatay province which killed 53 people.
Nazik is now being interrogated by security and intelligence teams in the capital Ankara.
Nazik was brought before the Ninth High Criminal Court in Ankara and arrested on Sept. 24.
The May 2013 bombings in Reyhanlı left 53 dead.
Some 912 buildings, 891 workplaces, and 148 vehicles were also heavily damaged in the attack.
