Türkiye Ministry Of Interior Terrorist Wanted List

List of people considered wanted for terrorism by the Türkiye Ministry of Interior

Türkiye has published a list of its most wanted terrorists, which includes details such as names, birth years, and places of birth.

These individuals are classified into five color-coded categories, ranging from red (kırmızı) — indicating the most wanted — to blue (mavi), green (yeşil), orange (turuncu), and grey (gri).

Each category corresponds to a different reward amount for information that leads to the capture of these wanted individuals.

Note: There are concerns about the list lacking a proper legal foundation due to the absence of a legal provision that regulates who can be included, how individuals can be removed, and how authorities can establish or manage the list.
