Four Turkish policemen were injured in a blast during an operation against ISIL in an apartment building in Turkey’s southeastern Gaziantep province Sunday, security forces said.

The anti-terrorism branch and special operations forces carried out the operation in an apartment in Beylerbeyi district against ISIL suspects. The blast occurred after security forces broke the door of a suspect's flat.

One of the four wounded policemen is in a critical condition, officials said.

Since July, security forces in the country have been conducting anti-terrorist operations across Turkey after a ISIL suicide bombing killed dozens of people in Suruc, Sanliurfa province on July 20. Another terrorist attack killed more than 100 people in Ankara on Oct. 10.
