32 detained by police on suspicion of terrorism

Accompanied by helicopters hovering above İstanbul’s Kucukcekmece district, the Counterterrorism Unit of the İstanbul Police Department raided certain homes and offices at dawn in an operation against sympathizers of the terrorist Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), detaining 12 suspects.

Police seized 150,000 packs of smuggled cigarettes during the operation.

The suspects were taken to the National Police Department for interrogation, following which they underwent a medical screening.

In another simultaneous operation in Adana province, 20 suspects were detained in relation to a car bomb that was left in front of the police department in the city of Seyhan by three terrorists on Tuesday morning. The car bomb was detonated and disposed of by police units.

A number of guns and explosives were seized during the raids and the suspects were taken to the Adana Police Department for questioning.

A driver parked his vehicle in front of the Seyhan Police Department early on Tuesday. Police officers wanted to detain the driver but two individuals in the area opened fire on the police. All three individuals managed to flee the scene.

The police then called bomb disposal units to the area. The teams found a bomb in the car and detonated it after evacuating the surroundings to prevent any casualties.
