World Bulletin / News Desk

Turkish security forces staged a broad anti-terror operation in Istanbul on Friday morning, police sources have said.

Teams from the Anti-Terror Branch Directorate, supported by special forces, staged simultaneous operations in Istanbul’s Buyukcekmece, Kagithane, Beylikduzu, Esenyurt and Beyoglu districts against the terrorist organization PKK’s youth wing, the YDG-H.

Police have yet to release the exact number of suspects detained, although a number of women are thought to be among those held.

Searches are continuing at the addresses targeted by the early morning raids, as well as at other locations given up by the detained suspects.
