I believe it's Temnothorax. Make sure to post your location and the queen's size.

That was my first thought, too, Cloud. I'd say Tetramorium depending on the size.

 Hey Aliserdar. You are in Turkey correct? it's important to post your location and what is the size in mm of the queen.

There are many different species of Tetramorium in Turkey. It could be T. caespitum which are native to Turkey.

I don't think there's too many people out there that can ID those ants based on those pics with no definite location or size. Get some better pics of one of the queens without wings if you can. That way we can see clearly how many petiole nodes she has, and their shape. Also post a location and a size in MM as others have said.

I personally think it looks like a Pheidole sp. but it's impossible to confirm based on these pics.

But look at the male. Too big in comparison to the queen for Pheidole.
